The United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) International Conference on Accessible Tourism to be held on 16 and 17 November at the Kursaal Congress Centre will also be attended by Italian Minister of Tourism Daniela Garnero Santanchè, who has supported the partnership with the Republic of San Marino for the organization of this prestigious event.
On 16 November at 9.30 a.m. Minister Santanchè will participate in the Opening Ceremony and at 10:45 a.m. she will be featured in the ministerial round table “How can a strategic leadership advance concrete accessibility achievements?”, along with Deputy Minister for Regional Development of Czechia, Jan Fluxa, Deputy Minister of Culture, Sports and Tourism of the Republic of Korea, Mi-Ran Jang, Chairperson of Tourism Committee of Uzbekistan, Umid Shadiev, and Foreign Affairs Senior Advisor to the Minister of Tourism of Israel, Peleg Lewi.
Political authorities, entrepreneurs, technicians and politicians will attend the event. The program includes more than 10 high-level panels with the presentation of projects, initiatives and case histories that will enrich the discussion and contribute to defining the “San Marino Action Agenda”. This document will define the guidelines for developing a tourism based on accessibility and sustainability – in line with the objectives of the UN Agenda 2030 – as well as on respect for people with disabilities, while, at the same time, making the Republic of San Marino into a permanent hub for designing policies on inclusiveness.
Among the guests will also be Princess Haifa bint Muhammad Al Saud, Deputy Minister of Tourism of Saudi Arabia, who is back to San Marino a few months after her last visit, thus confirming the excellent relations between the two countries in the field of tourist development.
