The ASEAN-Korea Centre (AKC) participated in ASEAN tourism related meetings from February 2-5, 2021. Hosted by the Ministry of Tourism of Cambodia, the meetings were held online due to the current circumstances of COVID-19. Under the theme “Unity for Sustainable and Responsible Tourism Recovery”, the meetings provided a platform for sharing information, exchanging ideas and discussing ASEAN-wide tourism policies and strategies.
The AKC was officially invited to the meetings to present results of FY2020 programs and plans for FY2021 programs. The AKC emphasized that it will continue its effort to invigorate cultural exchanges and support the development of sustainable and inclusive tourism of ASEAN by enhancing its contactless activities, such as including organizing online seminars. Through the meetings, the AKC was further updated on the latest developments and issues related to the ASEAN tourism, and was able to strengthen its network with tourism stakeholders (UNWTO, ASEANTA, PATA, US-ASEAN Business Council).
