The 2015 UNWTO Silk Road Ministers' Meeting at ITB Berlin focused on ‘Strengthening Cooperation through Transnational Route Development’. The Meeting discussed important developments with regards to transboundary routes across the Silk Road regions, including the inscription of the first Silk Road Heritage Corridor on the UNESCO World Heritage List, the Verotour project, the Maritime Silk Road and the Spice Route project, amongst others.

At this important annual meeting, ministers and high level officials from the Silk Road  were given the opportunity to provide input on how tourism routes are creating opportunities for transboundary cooperation, collaborative destination marketing, product development, public-private partnerships, and safeguarding of natural and cultural heritage.

The Meeting built on the 98th Session of the Executive Council, where the Council agreed to exchanging experiences and exploring the potential of new international and regional tourism routes.
