As World Tourism Day approaches Skal president shares message

As World Tourism Day approaches Skal president shares message ( As World Tourism day approaches later this week, Mok Singh, President of Skal International stated: “World Tourism Day on 27th September marks the annual milestone in the ongoing growth of Tourism throughout the world. The Kingdom of Jordan recently declared that Tourism contributes 13% of its GDP, clearly underlining the importance of this vital Industry to the economic wellbeing of nations. The United States received a total of $855.4 Billion in direct travel expenditures in 2012 which spurred an additional $1.1 trillion in other industries.

In addition to the significant economic impact of this Industry, it is credited with building collaterals towards peace in different parts of the world. A recent report stated that there was some evidence that efforts to generate dialogue between Tourism stakeholders in Iran and their counterparts in other parts of the world, may have contributed to the softening stance of the Iranian regime towards Western Governments.

The United Nations has declared this the “International year of water cooperation" to highlight the need for the tourism industry to devise innovative solutions to sustainable water use.

The 18,000 strong global community of Skal International members in 85 countries stand ready to do their part to support the efforts of the United Nations and our fellow stakeholder in tourism."
