The International Tourism and Investment Conference comes at a time when global tourism leaders are continuously engaged in the development of sustainable tourism and product differentiations; promotion of safe and secure travel and in the advent of technological innovation.

With a view to stimulating new ideas and defining a new vision for tourism through investments, we need to build a global alliance through strategic partnership in order to globalize travel and tourism, invest in infrastructure, product development and destination marketing.
