Here is his opening address:

Your Excellencies, distinguished guests, ladies and gentlemen, good afternoon.

As the Chairman of the World Travel and Tourism Council, I am honored to welcome you to the opening of our 13th Global Summit.

We are delighted to be here in the magnificent emirate of Abu Dhabi. What a superb location this is. Abu Dhabi has a visionary plan to become a global tourism destination and is without doubt establishing itself firmly on the international tourism map. This emirate should be congratulated for blending such modern, luxurious tourism facilities with the preservation of its fascinating culture and heritage so successfully.

A huge thank you goes to our hosts, the Abu Dhabi Tourism & Culture Authority and Etihad Airways. The support of these organizations under the leadership of His Excellency Mubarak al Muhairi and James Hogan, respectively, has been magnificent. Thanks to you and your teams’ dedication and unstinting efforts, we have been able to organize this prestigious gathering of the world’s Travel and Tourism industry leaders.

Our sincere appreciation also goes to our Gold and Silver sponsors whose support has also been of great importance in staging this summit. Please take the opportunity to visit their stands in the exhibition area during breaks between sessions.

We are all looking forward to an interesting, inspiring and productive two days exploring the current issues facing the Travel and Tourism industry and looking ahead at the challenges we face in the future.

In particular we will reflect on our roles as leaders in this industry, and how we need to apply our influence at the highest levels to ensure our industry continues to grow.

With that leadership theme in mind, we are particularly proud that one of the western world’s great former leaders, President Bill Clinton, will address us later this afternoon.

Your Excellencies, ladies and gentlemen, it gives me great pleasure to declare the WTTC’s 13th Global Travel & Tourism Summit open.
