She noted that tourism's future depending on people's desire to travel and that the role of national tourism organisations was to monitor developments in this area and move forward. "As GNTO, we are moving exactly in this direction, aiming at sustainable tourism growth in 2021 and a new tourism model up to 2030," she said.
