World Tourism Day 2019: Tourism and Jobs - A better future for all 

World Tourism Day is commemorated each year on 27 September. Its purpose is to foster awareness among the global community of tourism's social, cultural, political and economic value and the contribution the sector can make in reaching the Sustainable Development Goals. In this context, an interactive workshop will be organised by the Ministry of Tourism on Friday 27 September at the Shri Atal Bihari Vajpayee Tower in Ebène.  The event will focus on this year's theme, which is: Tourism and Jobs - A better future for All.

The aim of the workshop is to provide a platform for young people interested in the tourism sector to seek career opportunities. The session is in line with the speech of Pope Francis, during his recent visit to Mauritius, whereby he discussed the need to engage young people in the overall economic development of the country.

It will also be an opportunity for young graduates and professionals to interact with representatives of hotels, cruise managers, tour operators, airlines and travel agencies with a view to share experiences, best practices, as well as challenges of the tourism industry.
