Blueprint for New Tourism Citing a need to look beyond short-term considerations and focusing on benefits not only for people who travel, but also for the people in the communities they visit for their natural, social and cultural environments, the World Travel and Tourism Council has recommended a blueprint for new tourism. According to the WTTC report new tourism “dares to embrace a new dimension of Travel and Tourism. It is a mature response to a more complex world. Global consciousness of the importance of tourism has triggered a fresh look at the opportunities it represents. New Tourism is a new sense of coherent partnership between the private sector and public authorities. It is geared to delivering commercially successful products – but in a way that ensures benefits for everyone.” To view the full text of Terrance Roberts entire address to the Rotary Club of Lucaya on Tuesday October 4th 2005 click here or on his image
