As expected, the world community will therefore unite on September 27 to celebrate tourism, this time under the theme Tourism and Rural Development. Indeed, it is coincidence that the 2020 edition of World Tourism Day will highlight the role of tourism in providing opportunities outside the big cities. Of course, the Day will also highlight the role of tourism in preserving the cultural and natural heritage in the world.
" All over the world, tourism empowers rural populations to support themselves, providing jobs and opportunities, especially for women and young people. Tourism also enables rural populations to maintain their heritage culture and traditions, and it is vital for the preservation of habitat and species at risk ", said Zurab Pololikashvili, secretary general of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).
For the first time in 40 years that we have celebrated World Tourism Day, the official celebrations will not be hosted by a single member state of the United Nations specialized agency for tourism, but jointly by the countries of the bloc of MERCOSUR (Argentina, Brazil, Paraguay and Uruguay, with Chile as an observer).
In Vietnam, the tourism sector is expected to put in place a comprehensive stimulus plan in line with market trends. The Tourism Advisory Council (TAB) and the electronic journal VnExpress jointly conduct a survey on the needs and consumption trends of Vietnamese tourists to provide authorities and businesses with accurate market information. The investigation runs until September 20.
The National Tourism Administration is preparing the second stimulus program targeting domestic tourists, with the aim of creating safe and attractive tourism products. VNA /CVN
