E-Turbo News reports that the World Tourism Organization (the "other "WTO") has recently completed its first-stage WTO Code of Ethics implemenation process at an international meeting held in Rome.

From the article:

"The Code of Ethics comprises principles and procedures to be followed in tourism activities. It is addressed to all the stakeholders in tourism development, including governments, invited by the United Nations General Assembly to consider introducing its contents in relevant laws, regulations and professional practices," explained elected Chairman of the Committee Mr. Diego Cordovez, a United Nations official for 25 years.

As priority requiring awareness and action, the Committee indicated exploitation of human beings, in particular children; sustainable development of tourism; liberty of movements of visitors; ensuring effective right to tourism; fair trade in tourism services; education for tourism and observing ethical principles as a basis for understanding among people and a contribution to peace.
