Georgia has been elected as a member of the UNWTO Executive Council for the 2021-2025 period. Elections were held in Greece in Athens as part of the 66th meeting of the organization's European Commission.

Out of 35 member states of the Executive Board, 23 countries supported Georgia. The information is spread by the Ministry of Economy.
 
Georgia will have the opportunity to be involved in setting the goals of the organization and its further successful implementation, as well as to ensure its efficient and transparent functioning. Given its strategic location, Georgia will be able to protect the interests of both the Black Sea and Eastern European regions in terms of tourism development.

The Executive Board of the United Nations World Tourism Organization consists of 35 member states and is the governing body of the WTO, which ensures the effective work of the organization and discusses key issues of travel and tourism industry policy on the global agenda.
