Recognition of the Tourism Manifesto by the President of the European Parliament 

In his opening speech at the High-level Conference on Tourism held in Brussels on the occasion of World Tourism Day, the President of the European Parliament Antonio Tajani, commended the cooperation among the Manifesto supporting organisations:

In this increasingly competitive field, it is in our very best interests to join forces. In a way we are already doing this, through the work done by this Parliament and the Commission, in cooperation with many regional governments in the NECSTouR network and the European Travel Commission, and through the European Tourism Manifesto.

The European Tourism Manifesto is also mentioned in the briefing on ‘Major challenges for EU tourism and policy responses‘  prepared by the European Parliamentary Research Service (EP Think Thank) which was distributed at this momentous event.
