Dear Affiliate Member,

For the Affiliate Members Department, November has been a month in which we have been working hard within the Working Groups and we have laid the foundations for new projects with our Affiliate Members. Within the framework of the Working Group on SDGs Support, we have just launched the Survey on how SDGs have been incorporated into tourism practices and activities. During FITUR 2020 in Madrid, we will present the results of the survey which I am sure will be very useful to identify best practices and move closer towards the fulfillment of the Agenda 2030.

Moreover, I would like to remind you about the Board Meeting of Affiliate Members on the sidelines of FITUR, scheduled for the 24 January 2020. I am sure it will be a very productive and fruitful meeting and, following the proposal made in St. Petersburg, it will have a longer duration to offer the opportunity to work on a broader agenda. The Programme of the FITUR 2020 will be published shortly and the final agenda of the Board Meeting as well. 

Furthermore, the UNWTO, in collaboration with UNESCO, will be organizing the 4th World Conference on Tourism and Culture in Kyoto (12-13 December 2019). This is a great opportunity for Affiliate Members to exchange initiatives and best practices among them and with other actors within the tourism sector.

As always, I am at your disposal and look forward to hearing any comment you may have.

Ion Vilcu
