The beautiful island of the Republic of Seychelles has been confirmed as the country to host the 63rd Commission for Africa Meeting (CAF) in 2020.
The decision was reached after member states at the 62nd Commission meeting held on the sidelines of the just ended 23rd UNWTO General Assembly accepted the request of the Indian Ocean nation to host the important gathering of African Tourism leaders.
The chairman of the Commission, Kenya’s Najib Balala, read out the draft resolution and after no objection from members, he went ahead to move the motion.
The Commission of Africa Meetings are held every year as part of UNWTO’s statutory events.
The UNWTO Regional Commission for Africa is the major institutional platform where ministries in charge of tourism discuss the latest trends of the sector at the continental and global level and the implementation of their program of work.
The country in conjunction with the UNWTO will announce the date soon.
The Minister of Tourism, Marine Ports and Aviation Hon. Didier Dogley, who was leading Seychelles delegation, said that “the island is looking forward to hosting the tourism community during the commission meeting.”
