UNWTO and Andorra to partner on major Global Tourism Forum in 2011


UNWTO and the Government of the Principality of Andorra have agreed to organize a leading global tourism forum during the first quarter of 2011.



The announcement was made jointly by UNWTO Secretary-General, Taleb Rifai, and the Minister of Economy and Finance of Andorra, Pere Lopez, following the meeting of the Board of Trustees of the UNWTO. Themis Foundation held on 12 April in Andorra la Vella.


This event, to be held in close collaboration with other key international partners and stakeholders, aims to bring together high-level representatives of the tourism public and private sectors and other global leaders so as to provide the industry with strategic insights and guidance into the challenges lying ahead.


The Forum also constitutes a milestone in the growing cooperation between UNWTO and the Government of Andorra. UNWTO and Andorra have a close institutional relation. The UNWTO Themis Foundation, sponsored by the Government of Andorra and with its Headquarters in Andorra la Vella, is the operational arm of UNWTO for implementing its programme of work in the field of Education, Capacity Building, Training, Strategic Research and networking.


Further joint programmes include: the creation of a Tourism Observatory in Andorra; the development of a Mountain and Snow Tourism Knowledge Centre; the development of a tourism and training programme at the University of Andorra; and other consolidated activities such as the Practicum internship programme for UNWTO Member States officials, as well as other specialized training courses.
