UNWTO از بخش گردشگری الجزایر به عنوان مشارکت کننده در توسعه اقتصادی - اجتماعی کشورها پشتیبانی می کند. دبیرکل Francesco Frangialli در اولین کنفرانس ملی و بین المللی گردشگری که در پایتخت الجزایر (11-12 فوریه) برگزار شد و توسط عبدالعزیز بلخادم نخست وزیر افتتاح شد ، سخنرانی افتتاحیه کرد.
During his visit, Mr. Frangialli met the UN officials based in Algiers. He paid his respects to the 17 UN employees and other victims killed in two car bombings against the UN office and a court building in Algeria’s capital in December 2007.
As part of the United Nations family, UNWTO is committed to being a strong partner to Algeria along the road to greater prosperity for all Algerians. Algerian tourism prospects According to the latest UNWTO World Tourism Barometer, Algeria has experienced good results as an international tourism destination. This development coincides with the good performance of North Africa in 2007 (+9%), which grew slightly above Subsaharan Africa (+8%), primarily due to Morocco’s 14% rise. In 2007 international tourism grew at 6%, reaching almost 900 million arrivals.
In general, a continued healthy performance reflects the concerted efforts of both government and the private sector to develop infrastructure, focus on market and product diversification. Future expectations are also positive for Algeria, as the country is investing in new products and opening up access to new markets.
