Significant and swift measures are needed to support the Travel & Tourism sector in the turbulent months ahead. WTTC urges governments to implement policies that will directly support the sector across the three key areas.
Our Members include over 200 CEOs, Chairpersons and Presidents of the world’s leading Travel & Tourism companies from all geographies covering all industries. WTTC works to raise awareness of Travel & Tourism as one of the world’s largest economic sectors, supporting one in 10 jobs (330 million) worldwide, and generating 10.3% of global GDP.
For the past 30 years, WTTC has conducted research on the economic impact of Travel & Tourism in 185 countries. In 2019, the Travel & Tourism sector experienced 3.5% growth, outpacing that of the global economy (2.5%) for the ninth consecutive year. Over the past five years, one in four new jobs were created by the sector, making Travel & Tourism the best partner for governments to generate employment.
Our priorities are: Security & Travel Facilitation, Crisis Preparedness, Management & Recovery, and Sustainable Growth.
WTTC is the only global body representing the Travel & Tourism sector with over 200 companies now being represented on the Council.
We have a growing suite of Industry, Knowledge and Media Partners who provide support and assistance with delivering our initiatives, and actively participate at events alongside our Members.
WTTC focuses on three key areas: security and travel facilitation; crisis preparedness and response; and sustainable growth.
