WTTC advocates partnership between the public and private sectors, delivering results that match the needs of economies, local and regional authorities and local communities with those of business based on: governments recognizing travel and tourism as a top priority; business balancing economics with people, culture and environment; and a shared pursuit of long-term growth and prosperity.
