The United States of America about to re-join UNWTO
U.S. Tourism and UNWTO is making history in Baku, Azerbaijan. The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is currently holding its Executive Council Meeting in Baku, Azerbaijan. UNWTO had been trying to convince the United States to become a member for many years. This can be considered a turn for the UN Affiliated organization.
According to informed sources talking to eTN from the venue of a meeting at the Hilton Hotel in Baku in Azerbaijan Ms. Hill made this announcement minutes ago at the Executive Council session.
Insiders believe this will be a game changer not only for UNWTO but also for the United States and the involvement of the U.S. within the global travel and tourism industry. For decades the U.S. was never officially on the table, and this move may not only bring the U.S. in the picture but on the front seat. It will allow a fairer and more balanced approach to counter the influence China and Russia established in this global industry.
