World Tourism Day

On September 27th, World Tourism Day shines a spotlight on tourism's benefits. Tourism adds economic value to communities while also adding economic value, political, and cultural value to destinations. In essence, tourism helps all countries to ensure a prosperous future.

Tourism is a big industry. Tourism contributed $8.8 trillion dollars to the global economy in 2018. Over the past two years, travel and tourism have been the second-fastest growing market in the world. The tourism industry also added 319 million jobs. Despite the number of jobs that tourism brings, there is still work to do. According to industry experts, tourism can create even more jobs, particularly for women, youth, and people in rural areas.

The World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), the UN's body's department, hopes to implement programs that will help promote sustainable tourism by the year 2030. Tourism will create jobs and promote local cultures and products in turn.
