Día Mundial del Turismo

From today, September 26, and until September 28, 2022, Fedelsa Group joins the celebration of World Tourism Day, which on this occasion has the motto "Rethinking tourism".

Since 1979, the General Assembly of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), instituted September 27 of each year as the special date to promote this economic sector due to the importance and its social, cultural, political and economic value worldwide. .

This year the host country in charge of receiving the delegates of the UNWTO General Assembly is Indonesia. Bali, "the island of the gods" will host the 42nd edition of World Tourism Day. The event seeks to contribute to meeting the global challenges outlined in the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals and to influence the contribution that the tourism sector can make to achieving these goals.

Currently Colombia is one of the most attractive nations for tourism of any kind. In the 2019 index, the country that inspired the movie 'Encanto' currently ranks 55th out of 140 economies and in South America, it ranks 5th behind Brazil, Peru, Argentina and Chile. If we talk about the city of Cartagena, it is one of the most desired cities by national and international tourists for its beautiful beaches, high quality hotels, its gastronomy, its architecture and history.

At Fedelsa Group, we are in a constant search for innovation with people and the planet in mind. The theme “Rethinking tourism” inspires us to reflect on the rethinking and responsibilities that contribute to development, through education and employment.
