The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) made official today the designation of Mexico as host to the World Tourism Day (WTD) to be held on September 27, 2014.
During the 20th UNWTO General Assembly, held in Victoria Falls, between Zambia and Zimbabwe, it was reported that the topic will be Tourism and Community Development.
The World Tourism Day is celebrated annually on September 27 and is the most important international event in the tourism sector.
The purpose of WTD is to foster awareness among the international community of the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic development and its realization in Mexico. It seeks to address the global challenges outlined in the Millennium Development Goals of the United Nations, and to influence in the contribution that the tourism sector can provide to achieve these objectives.
The World Tourism Day is held every year in a different region of the world: Europe, Asia, Africa, Oceania and America, and this last one holds it every five years. In this case, it is the turn of Mexico to host the celebration of this event, on September 27, 2014.
The WTD was established since 1980, at the Third Session of the UNWTO General Assembly, held in Torremolinos, Spain. And on September 27 it was chosen to coincide with an important milestone in world tourism: the anniversary of the adoption of the UNWTO Statutes, in September 1970.
