“ The commitment of the Kingdom associated with Morocco with the tourism sector is certainly remarkable, not only by joining right now the International Year of Eco friendly Tourism for Development, but also simply by other gestures done in the past for example partnering with the World Tourism Business in promoting more responsible practices plus leading the process of adoption of the Africa Charter” said UNWTO Secretary-General Taleb Rifai.
