UNWTO and FiFA Joins Forces Ahead of South Africa 2010

( Big sporting events can promote business- and leisure tourism, which in turn can be streamlined into socio-economic development efforts. This close relationship is increasingly acknowledged and lies behind the close relations between UNWTO and FIFA ahead of the South African World Cup 2010.

The 2010 edition of the FIFA World Cup in Africa will be held under the slogan Win in Africa with Africa, and will be committed to the Legacy for African football, and Football to help development.

Aware of the fact that Africa can benefit from this major event, the heads of FIFA, UNWTO and the UNWTO ST-EP Foundation (Sustainable Tourism Eliminating Poverty) are preparing a partnership to assist the African countries within the framework of the 2010 edition of the FIFA World Cup.

Particularly through its ST-EP programme, UNWTO has put in place a framework for poverty alleviation, linking its longstanding pursuit of sustainable tourism with the United Nations Millennium Development Goals and its own Global Code of Ethics.

The World Cup constitutes an opportunity that the countries of the region can seize in order to obtain the maximum socio-economic, promotional and cultural benefits. It should also contribute to strengthening the image of Africa , UNWTO Secretary-General Francesco Frangialli said." >
