We’d like to wish everyone a happy World Tourism Day (WTD) 2012 – which is being held under the theme Tourism & Sustainable Energy: Powering Sustainable Development.


World Tourism Day is held annually on 27 September and it was conceived to foster awareness about the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic value.

Additionally, it aims to address the global challenges defined in the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) and to illuminate the contribution the tourism sector can make in realising these objectives.

Our commitment to sustainability , the environment , and all of our corporate responsibility endeavors make this day an especially important one for us.

Have a look at the World Tourism Day celebrations going on around the world and let us know what you’re doing to recognize this day.
