    Rabat - The holding of the 24th session of the General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) next October in Marrakech testifies to Morocco's leadership, said, Wednesday in Rabat, UNWTO Secretary General Zurab Pololikashvili, who is on an official visit to the Kingdom.

    Speaking during a press briefing after a meeting with Minister of Foreign Affairs, African Cooperation and Moroccans Abroad, Nasser Bourita, the UN official stressed that his visit is an opportunity to discuss with the government of Morocco the future of tourism in the country and preparations for the summer of 2021.

    This is a new start, he said, reiterating the support of the UNWTO for Morocco especially in these very difficult times, with the launch of interesting projects, while paying particular attention to the education/training.

    He also stressed the need to support the private sector that has suffered the most from the serious repercussions of the pandemic, emphasizing the need to support startups. 'We really believe that Morocco has enormous talents and that local entrepreneurs and startups must be supported to develop and even export their ideas,' he said.

    Pololikashvili also noted that Marrakech will host the first General Assembly of the UNWTO after the lockdowns imposed around the world, adding that it will be the opportunity to bring together many ministers worldwide and discuss the future of tourism.
