The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) is the forum for business leaders in the Travel & Tourism industry. With Chief Executives of some one hundred of the world’s leading Travel & Tourism companies as its Members, WTTC has a unique mandate and overview on all matters related to Travel & Tourism. WTTC works to raise awareness of Travel & Tourism as one of the world’s largest industries, supporting 277 million jobs and generating 9.8 per cent of world GDP.
Freedom to Travel:
WTTC believes in the right of people to cross international borders efficiently for leisure or business travel purposes, without compromising national security. Despite an increasing number of visa waiver programmes around the world, too many individuals still find it too difficult to enter certain countries as international travellers. WTTC’s ongoing focus is visa facilitation, convincing governments of the huge economic advantages generated by visa policies which encourage inbound visitors.
Policies for Growth
WTTC campaigns for governments to implement policies that ensure the business environment is conducive to the growth of Travel & Tourism. This means planning and investing in appropriate infrastructure and creating a tax regime which allows the private sector to be competitive. WTTC has made it a priority to raise awareness of the negative impact punitive taxation has –particularly aviation tax -on inbound and outbound tourism
