Tourism Corporation Bonaire (TCB) would like to congratulate our tourism partners, stakeholders and those working in the tourism sector on this year’s World Tourism Day, September 27th, 2016 for their continuous efforts and devotion to our industry. This year’s theme is “Tourism For All”.
“Tourism has experienced a revolution in the past 50 years. In 1950 there were 25 million international tourists; today there are around 1.2 billion people traveling the world. Traveling has become a huge part of many lives. When traveling, we come across new people, new sights, and new ideas. Often our perception of the world changes as we see more of it. However, we must not forget that for many, traveling can be quite a difficult process. Accessibility for all should be at the center of tourism policies and business strategies not only as a human right, but also as a great market opportunity,” according to UNWTO Secretary-General Taleb Rifai.
TCB would like to thank everyone for their collaboration and for working towards making Bonaire’s Tourism Industry stronger and beneficial for all. Happy World Tourism Day to all!
