WASHINGTON, USA — Guyana will host the 24th Inter-American Congress of Ministers and High-Level Authorities of Tourism of the Americas on March 21-22, 2018. The government of Guyana and the OAS General Secretariat signed a cooperation agreement on Thursday for the organization of the event.

It will be the first ever high level OAS meeting in that country. The meeting’s theme will be “Connecting the Americas through Sustainable Tourism”.    

Permanent representative of Guyana to the OAS, Riyad Insanally, said, “It’s a historic occasion for Guyana. We look forward with pleasure and anticipation to welcome you all to Guyana. For us, sustainable tourism is critical for our development as a nation.”

OAS Secretary General Luis Almagro added, “Tourism can significantly expand economic opportunities for our citizens. It should be sustainable, ensuring that the economic, social, cultural and environmental elements are fully respected.”

The 23rd Inter-American Congress of Tourism was held in Lima, Peru, in 2015.
