Seychelles and Senegal elected as Africa delegates to UNWTO

The 19th Session of the UNWTO General Assembly being held at Gyeongju in Korea has elected the Republic of the Seychelles and the Republic of Senegal as Africa delegates to the UNWTO Sustainable Tourism Committee.

Minister Thierno Lo, the Senegal Minister responsible for tourism, and Mr. Alain St.Ange, the CEO of the Seychelles Tourism Board, headed their respective delegations at the 19th Session of the UNWTO General Assembly where sustainable tourism was a point raised by many member countries during their addresses at the Plenary Sessions of the Assembly.

Africa is a continent that realizes that they will not have a tourism industry unless it is sustainable, and Seychelles and Senegal, as their delegates elected to the UNTWO Sustainable Tourism Committee, have been mandated to look that the development and practices being undertaken today does not happen at the expense of tomorrow.
