United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO)In a video message to delegates of the Mekong Tourism Forum 2016 in Sihanoukville, Cambodia, United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) Secretary General Taleb Rifai commended the GMS Tourism Working Group and the MTCO for picking the theme of authenticity for the Forum. He also applauded the participation of the Global Sustainable Tourism Council.

“The declaration by the UN of 2017 as the International Year of Sustainable Tourism for Development is a unique opportunity to advance the contribution of the tourism sector to the three pillars of sustainability—economic, social and environmental—while raising awareness of the true dimensions of a sector that is often undervalued,” Mr Rifai said.
