WTTC Global Summit 2016: Scowsill urges world leaders to keep borders open

World Travel & Tourism president David Scowsill has urged world leaders not to close borders in response to the growing threat of terrorism. Speaking at the start of the organisation’s annual Global Summit in Dallas, Texas, he said: “Closing borders and jeopardising the freedom to travel is not the answer to the current security concerns. World leaders need to stand together and act now, with the support of the tourism sector.”
