Napiling mag-host ang Pilipinas sa 2021 World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) Global Summit, ayon sa naturang konseho.
Pahayag ni WTTC Regional Director for Asia Pacific and Middle East Nigel David, “We are reaffirming our commitment to the key Meetings, Incentive Travel, Conventions, Exhibitions (MICE) Industry with the news that in 2021, WTTC will host two global summits, the rearranged summit held over from this year in Cancun, Mexico, and more importantly, the global summit to be held in Manila later next year.”
Ang WTTC Global Summit ay isang annual event kung saan nagtitipun-tipon ang 800 delegates katulad ng mga Chief Executive Officers (CEOs), pangulo at chairperson ng mga prominenteng international travel and tourism companies at ng mga opisyales ng mga international organizations katulad ng United Nations World Tourism Organization.
Ito ay nakatakdang ganapin sa 4th quarter ng 2021. Pahayag naman ni Department of Tourism Secretary Bernadette Romulo-Puyat, “The Philippines is honored to have been selected as the host country for the WTTC Global Summit, as it strengthens our MICE campaign and affirms our continuing strategies to position the Philippines as the MICE hub in Asia.”
Sa naturang event ay pag-uusapan ang mga polisiya at isyung kinakaharap ng global tourism. Saad pa ni Puyat, “Most importantly, the event is set to generate substantial investments as CEOs and Presidents attending the Summit are looking for investment areas and opportunities to expand their businesses and strengthen their market presence in the region.”
