La Organización Mundial del Turismo (OMT) invita cordialmente a sus Estados Miembros a participar en la edición 2017 del programa UNWTO Practicum.

  • (a) ofrecer capacitación a los funcionarios de las Administraciones Nacionales de Turismo de los Estados Miembros de la OMT en sus esferas de responsabilidad básicas;

  • (b) familiarizarles con el programa de trabajo de la OMT y de la Fundación OMT. Themis y las actividades y servicios que en él se ofrecen; y

  • (c) darles la oportunidad de establecer contactos entre los participantes y con los funcionarios responsables de la OMT y la Fundación OMT.Themis.


De este modo, los funcionarios  pueden aprovechar mejor el valor añadido que la OMT ofrece a sus Miembros, y tener contacto personal con responsables de los diversos programas de la Organización y programas regionales.

Todo funcionario que quiera participar al UNWTO Practicum deberá:

 

  • ocupar un puesto de nivel directivo en la administración nacional, regional o local de turismo, con participación directa en el área de Comunicación;

  • tener un excelente dominio del Español y/o Francés -según corresponda-, ya que el Taller se llevará a cabo en estos idiomas; y

  • ser capaz de contribuir activamente a los procedimientos del Practicum de la OMT.

Para inscribirse al UNWTO Practicum,  los candidatos deberán rellenar el formulario de pre-inscripción en https://survey.zohopublic.com/zs/SMCux0 .

 

La fecha límite para la presentación de candidaturas es el 30 de Mayo de 2017.

Dado el carácter interactivo del UNWTO Practicum, la participación está limitada a un total de 10 personas por idioma, por lo cual se hará una selección final de los participantes en función de sus méritos y los seleccionados serán informados por correo electrónico. Así mismo, se debe tener en cuenta que el hecho de inscribirse, no significa que el candidato haya sido aceptado automáticamente como participante.

Por otro lado, y como se indica en el documento adjunto sobre Información General, el transporte aéreo de ida a Madrid (España) y de vuelta desde Barcelona (España) correrá a cargo del país que envíe a cada participante, mientras que la OMT sufragará el alojamiento en Madrid y Andorra, y el transporte interior Madrid - Andorra - Barcelona.

The UNWTO & Arabian Travel Market Ministerial Forum on Tourism’s contribution to sustainable and inclusive economic growth and diversification in the MENA region, brought together Ministers of Tourism and industry leaders in the MENA region to consider ways and means of capitalizing on Tourism growth in the region and building a sustainable ecosystem for the sector that would unlock its contribution to the fulfilment of their national agendas for GDP growth and economic diversification, innovation, entrepreneurship and productivity, job creation, human capital and infrastructure development, investment and export promotion.

The Forum addressed the following issues:

  • Empowering evidence based decision making and accurate measurement of the contribution of Tourism to current and future economic growth - particularly as regards GDP, jobs and exports - and its multiplier effect on other sectors of the economy.
  • Enhancing the contribution of domestic tourism alongside international tourism (especially intra-regional) in delivering sustainable economic growth from the sector.
  • Main challenges and opportunities for securing investment in Tourism (FDI and domestic investment).
  • Strategies and measures to strengthen Tourism’s resilience to external shocks.
  • Ensuring that economic growth due to Tourism leads to the sustainable and inclusive development of host communities and the transition towards a green economy.
  • Investing in technology - driven innovations to enhance performance and improve competitiveness.
  • Policies to promote job creation and entrepreneurship.
  • Strengthening the sector’s institutional framework, engaging and aligning key governmental role players on Tourism policy issues and targets and developing result driven partnerships with local and international stakeholders.
