Webinar Series #RebuildingTourism: International Code for the Protection of Tourists
Skål International Webinar Series: Rebuilding Tourism
We are starting this year with a new series of webinars dedicated to providing valuable information on our Tourism industry for its recovery: #RebuildingTourism.
On this occasion we present an interesting session, 'International Code for the Protection of Tourists' with the participation of the UNWTO.
The unusual situation generated by the pandemic has brought an issue into focus: How to provide greater legal protection for tourists?
The World Tourism Organization considers it absolutely necessary to regain the trust of consumers and tourists, and is therefore working on the elaboration of an International Code for the Protection of Tourists.
This project has already been endorsed by almost 100 countries and will help to provide tourists affected by emergency situations with clearer and more consistent conditions of assistance worldwide.
