Tourism’s sustained growth and its capacity to tackle global challenges – from economic crises and persistent unemployment to environmental pressures and the poverty imperative – can only be achieved through collective action. This was the central message coming out of the Global Tourism Forum Andorra 2011 (GTF) (Andorra la Vella, Andorra, 6-7 March).

The GTF has concluded in Andorra with calls for the international tourism community to move the tourism agenda forward sustainably and in full coordination and collaboration.

“During this Forum I trust you will determine how to set tourism development on a path that will always be both competitive and responsible, taking into consideration new challenges,” said the Prime Minister of Andorra, Jaume Bartumeu, as he officially opened the GTF.

Experts from the private sector, opinion leaders and government representatives from within and outside the tourism sector will examine the state of global tourism at the upcoming Global Tourism Forum Andorra 2011 (Andorra la Vella, Andorra, 6-7 March 2011). Against a backdrop of economic challenges, and considering current developments in the Middle East and North Africa, the spotlight is clearly set on the future development of tourism, as one of the leading socio-economic phenomena of our time.

The Global Tourism Forum Andorra (GTF) organized by UNWTO, in collaboration with the Government of Andorra, will for the first time bring together representatives from inside and outside the sector to debate the best path for more sustained and responsible tourism development. Participants include stakeholders from the public sector, global tourism companies, civil society, academia and representatives from international organizations.

Senior representatives of the private sector, governments and United Nations organizations will meet next March in the Principality of Andorra to analyse tourism and its key role in international economic growth and development at the Global Tourism Forum Andorra 2011 (6-7 March 2011).

In spite of its proven contribution to the global economy and to development, the tourism sector still lacks the political and economic recognition required to fully harness its potential. A growing sector, particularly in emerging economies, tourism represents a third of the services exports and up to 7% of employment worldwide.
