UNWTO Secretary-General Thanks Outgoing WTTC President for Strong Partnership

The UNWTO Secretary-General, Taleb Rifai, has expressed his sincere appreciation to David Scowsill, President and CEO of the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), for the strong partnership between both organizations after he announced his departure after six years at the helm of WTTC.

Over the last six years, the UNWTO and WTTC have created a strong partnership, bringing public and private sector together to advance the tourism sector and address its most pressing priorities.

The UNWTO and WTTC Open Letter on Travel and Tourism Initiative launched in 2011 garnered the support of over 80 heads of state and government from around the world.

 With that initiative, UNWTO and WTTC aim to promote the importance of the tourism sector in socio-economic inclusive development at the highest level.

“I could not have asked for a better partner. It has been a privilege to work alongside David to mainstream our sector in the global agenda and ensure public and private sector do work together for a better future” said UNWTO Secretary-General, Taleb Rifai. “During his time at WTTC, David has showed unparalleled leadership and vision, championing public/private sector collaboration and promoting the sustainable growth of our sector. As founder and Chairman of the Global Travel Association Coalition (GTAC), an initiative to ensure the sector can speak with “One Voice” on the key issues such as safe and seamless travel or sustainability, David has united the sector like never before.”

Mr Scowsill future plans include joining boards of companies around the world and providing strategic advice to governments.
