Kofi Annan at WTTC

The 14th World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) Global Summit will take place at Hainan Province (China), 24-25 April 2014, with former Secretary General of the United Nations 1997-2006, Kofi Annan, as the keynote speaker.

WTTC is an international authority on the economic and social contribution of travel and tourism.  It promotes sustainable growth for the industry, working with governments and international institutions to create jobs, to drive exports and generate prosperity.  Its Global Summit is the world's highest-level gathering of travel and tourism executives, government representatives and media, working together to unlock the industry's significant potential for sustainable worldwide development and economic growth.

The WTTC Global Summit always attracts the biggest names in the travel industry and some high-profile speakers from outside of the industry: speakers at recent Summits include Bill Clinton, Tony Blair, Robert Redford, Ted Turner, Sir David Frost, Felipe Calderon and Daryl Hannah.

Kofi Annan was Secretary General of the United Nations 1997-2006, Nobel Peace Prize Recipient 2001 and the Founder and Chair of the Kofi Annan Foundation working in focus areas, peace and security, sustainable development, and rule of law and human rights. http://kofiannanfoundation.org  www.wttc.org/events/hainan-2014
