According to new research from the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), travel and tourism is the world’s second-fastest growing industry, employing more than 100 million people (2014) globally.
With more than 1 billion international travellers seeking new adventures around the globe each year, there will continue to be opportunities for well-trained and qualified individuals to work in various sectors of the travel and tourism industry. It is important to remember that, while building tourism for tomorrow, we ensure sustainability.
“Tourism which, while growing, needs to be inclusive, have a minimal impact on its surroundings, protect environments and habitats, benefit communities, support local cultures, and celebrate diversity.” – World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC)
