World Tourism Day – 27 September 2015

In support of World Tourism Day 2015, view this Tourism Stories video in appreciation of tourism and what it does for communities around the world.

Moving more than one billion people across international borders each year, international tourism accounts for 9% of global GDP and one in every 11 jobs on the planet. Behind the impressive numbers are all the chefs, innkeepers, artisans, taxi drivers, guides and millions of others who make up the bulk of the tourism sector, which for many represents a vital opportunity for a better life.

Watch Tourism Stories to get to know some of the individuals working in tourism, and how this has contributed to improving their lives and the welfare of their communities.
