AM NEWS | VOL. 63 April 2024

Dear Affiliate Members,

I am pleased to introduce you to a new edition of the Affiliate Members Newsletter. This monthly publication will inform you about the latest news, events, and initiatives related to your membership and our Affiliate Members network. Also included is the updated calendar of events for 2024, featuring the main UN Tourism events.

It's an exciting month ahead, with a series of important events lined up for the Affiliate Members' agenda. Starting with the Regional Commission for Europe, which took place on 7-9 April in Tirana, Albania; followed by the International Forum on “Turismo y Cultura: una relación de pelicula;” scheduled for 19 April in Quintana Roo, Mexico, and to conclude the Regional Commission for the Americas, scheduled to take place on 29- 30 April, in Varadero, Cuba. For more information and updates about the Affiliate Members' possibilities of involvement in the abovementioned events please visit the AMConnected+ platform.

I am very satisfied with the level of engagement by our Affiliate Members in the recent events, and I look forward to the same promising results in the upcoming UN Tourism Statutory Meetings:

  • Regional Commission for the Americas & Seminar: Enhancing tourism development through innovation in community-based tourism
  • Regional Commission for the Middle East & Conference on “Investing in Tourism: Opportunities and Challenges in Sustainable Financing”
  • 121st UN Tourism Executive Council
  • Regional Commission for Asia and the Pacific & Forum on Gastronomy Tourism for Asia and the Pacific
  • Regional Commission for Africa

Lastly, I am pleased to share with you the very positive response that the new tools and functionalities of the AMConnected+ platform have received among Affiliate Members. This user-friendly interface, inspired by the most widely used social networks, the ability to navigate based on your interests through Regional and Thematic Channels, the mobile version, and other available features, reflect our commitment to providing value to the UN Tourism Affiliate Membership.

The Affiliate Members Department will continue to collaborate and support the Affiliate Members' initiatives to the best of its capabilities. As usual, I am at your disposal and look forward to hearing any comments you might have.

Yours sincerely,
Ion Vilcu
