Secretary-General Message

 

Mr. Taleb Rifai

UNWTO Secretary-General

The rapid development of the tourism sector in recent decades has been followed by the rise of specific segments such as snow and mountain tourism. 

The World Congress on Snow and Mountain Tourism, taking place every two years since 1998, speaks for the growing importance of this segment and the interest it generates around the world. It is also an example of the valuable cooperation between UNWTO and the Government of the Principality of Andorra.

The coming 9th edition of the World Congress of Snow and Mountain Tourism, focusing on adventure and sport tourism, is an opportunity to discuss the development of the segment in the framework of the recently approved Sustainable Development Goals and the new Agenda 2030.

Looking forward to see you in Andorra.

 

Mr. Taleb Rifai

UNWTO Secretary-General
