WTTC Working with Government

A Platform for Government Engagement

As the trusted voice in Travel & Tourism, WTTC is a unique platform for governments to engage with businesses to jointly shape the future of Travel & Tourism and ensure its long-term competitiveness, inclusivity and sustainability. 

Through participation in high-level events and contributions to forward-thinking thought-leadership pieces, federal, regional and city governments actively engage in multi-stakeholder dialogue to achieve sector-wide alignment; ultimately ensuring that Travel & Tourism remains a win-win-win, for government, businesses and the local communities alike. 

To inform public sector decision-making, WTTC continues to produce robust research, insightful thought-leadership reports, from crisis readiness to Destination 2030, as well as quantifiable best practices ranging from security, workforce development and the promotion of destinations to sustainability, destination stewardship and infrastructure. In addition to the reports featuring highlights of best practices, the full repository is readily available. 

If you would like to get involved and join the 100+ federal, regional and city governments already engaging with us, from Saudi Arabia to Kenya and Portugal to the USA, please email Lola in our Government Affairs team at lola.cardenas@wttc.org

Best Practices Enabling the Growth of Travel & Tourism

Despite the sector’s ability to be a force for good, best practices across Travel & Tourism are not readily available for both the public and private sector, often compelling governments to unnecessarily re-invent the wheel.

In this context, the World Travel & Tourism Council has embarked on a journey to compile quantifiable best practices across Travel & Tourism to equip the sector with a wealth of insights that will in turn enable, both the public and private sector, to learn from the successful experiences of other countries as they develop, review and implement Travel & Tourism related policies.
