T20 Tourism Ministerial Meeting
International tourism is an engine of the global economy, both in terms of its size and its growth potential. However, the travel restrictions limited the potential of them internationally. On the opposite side, it appears that the liberalization in travel generates significant increases in average spending of tourists and the generation of jobs.
In this context, the 4th Ministerial Meeting of Tourism (T20 Mexico) seeks to generate a concrete proposal for the facilitation and simplification of visa regimes and migratory processes of member countries of the G20, identifying which would be the impact of such action in the generation of jobs and economic growth within these Nations. To do so, it will be with the participation and support of the World Tourism Organization and the World Travel and Tourism Council, the Organization for Economic Co-operation and Development and the World Economic Forum, to identify the impact of such measures, as well as best practices that currently apply leading countries in the tourist field and the actions to follow for the simplification of formalities in the G20 Nations. This proposal will be presented to the President of Mexico, Felipe Calderón as an option to reactivate the generation of jobs and strengthen the development of tourism at the global level.
