and the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) discussed the current
state and prospects for the development of traditional cooperation
that meets mutual interests, Trend reports.

Serdar Berdimuhamedov and UNWTO Secretary General Zurab

been a member of the UNWTO since 1993, and for more than 30 years
we have accumulated useful experience of cooperation,”
Berdimuhamedov stressed.

is not fully utilized, the head of state expressed support for the

modern realities and opportunities of Turkmenistan.

developing sustainable tourism, the goals of which coincide with
the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), in order to achieve
socio-economic progress and ensure environmental well-being.

Meanwhile, the UN World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) is an
international institution established to promote and coordinate
global tourism, promote sustainable and responsible tourism, and
promote economic growth, social development, and intercultural
understanding through tourism.

The organization provides support to member countries in policy
formulation, the development of standards and recommendations, as
well as research and analysis of trends in the tourism sector.
