Morocco in force at the Summit on the revival of tourism organized recently at the initiative of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO).
This event, which was held last Wednesday in Riyadh, was attended by a Moroccan delegation led by Nadia Fettah Alaoui, Minister of Tourism, Crafts, Air Transport and Social Economy, accompanied by Imad Barrakad, Director General of the Moroccan Society of Tourism Engineering, and Tarik Sadik, Director General of the Craftsman’s House. Speaking in this direction, Nadia Fettah recalled Morocco’s efforts in the management of the Covid-19 pandemic under the enlightened leadership of the Sovereign as well as the actions taken by the government to limit its effects on the economic fabric. The opportunity was for the Minister to present to a large audience the outlines of the contractual support and revival program for the tourism sector established over the period 2020-2022. A device that tends to preserve jobs in the sector, stimulate demand and support a structural transformation of national tourism. “These efforts were crowned by the vaccination campaign against the Coronavirus, which was launched by His Majesty King Mohammed VI which allowed a large number of Moroccan citizens and foreigners residing in Morocco to benefit from it. This campaign has contributed to reducing the number of contaminations, thus giving positive indicators for the revival of the national economy and the recovery of the tourism sector ”, indicated the Minister.
Nadia Fattah also emphasized the resilient nature that the tourism sector has always shown in previous crises as well as its ability to quickly recover. To this end, the Minister called for continued fruitful cooperation in the field between the UNWTO and the Member States.
The aim is to provide solutions adapted to the restoration of tourism in a post-Covid-19 phase. Note that on the sidelines of this summit, the Minister met with the Secretary General of the UNWTO on the state of progress of the preparations and measures taken by the Kingdom of Morocco to organize the twenty-fourth session of the general assembly of the Organization in Marrakech. Nadia Fettah also exchanged with the Saudi Minister of Tourism to discuss ways to develop fruitful cooperation between the two countries in tourism, as well as strengthening the legal framework.
The Minister of Tourism also discussed with Maribel Rodriguez, Senior Vice-President of the World Travel and Tourism Council, several projects of common interest, in particular the strengthening of the presence of Moroccan and African professional federations and associations within this instance.
