Weather of Arabia - In the past two years, the world has lived in exceptional circumstances due to the Corona epidemic (COVID-19), which had enormous social and economic impacts. Both developed and developing economies were affected, and tourism was one of the sectors most affected, due to the ban imposed by many Countries, and restrictions placed on the tourism sector to prevent the spread of the virus.
All of these circumstances would have caused the suspension or reduction of the tourism movement, which was supplying the economy of many countries, so resuming tourism now after easing restrictions, will help to start recovery and growth, and enjoy the benefits that this will bring on a large scale.
Proceeding from the importance of tourism, the World Tourism Day, which is celebrated every year on September 27, was dedicated to promoting awareness of the social, cultural, political and economic value of tourism and the contribution that the sector can make towards achieving sustainable development goals.
Therefore, the World Tourism Organization has defined the theme of World Tourism Day 2021 as a day to focus on tourism “for inclusive growth” . For this to be an opportunity to look beyond tourism statistics and recognize that there is a person behind every number.
With this slogan, the World Tourism Organization invites its member states, non-members, sister United Nations agencies, companies and individuals to celebrate the unique potential of tourism, and to engage the whole world to begin to open up again and look to a better future.
