UNWTO Welcomes 15 New Affiliate Members
UNWTO has welcomed 15 new Affiliate Members into its growing network of tourism stakeholders.
The newly admitted members were confirmed during the 116th Session of the UNWTO Executive Council, held in Jeddah, Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. They come from Canada, Chile, Croatia, Ecuador, Italy, Malaysia, Portugal, Spain, Turkey, and USA, and represent private entities, universities, DMOs, professional associations, and NGOs.
In compliance with the relevant legal framework, since the candidatures were received in November 2021, they were revised by the Committee on Matters related to Affiliate Membership. Then, they were submitted for consideration and approval of the Executive Council. These candidatures will be presented at the 25th session of the UNWTO General Assembly, pending ratification.
UNWTO recognizes the private sector as an important partner in fulfilling its general mandate for the promotion of sustainable tourism development and the achievement of the 2030 Agenda.
