The Secretary General  Zurab Pololikashvili has repeatedly highlighted the resilience of the tourism sector and called on national governments to go beyond words to commit  towards a recovery of the sector hardest hit.

 ”This crisis has shown the strength of solidarity across borders. But nice words and gestures will not protect jobs or help the many millions of people whose lives are dependent on a thriving tourism sector,” Pololikashvili said.

”Governments have an opportunity to recognize tourism’s unique ability to not only provide employment but to drive equality and inclusivity.

”Our sector has proven its ability to bounce back and help societies recover. We ask that tourism is now given the right support to once again lead recovery efforts.”
