The international conference of the world Organization of tourism (WTO) ended yesterday Thursday after two days of work at the meeting which allowed for the first time the event on its soil, with more than 20 participating countries and hundreds of speakers.

Five strategic thrusts have been proposed during the final declaration at the end of the work.

1 - The Tourism as key to sustainable development in the islands
 
2 - Nature and cultural heritage tourism as key strengths of the islands
 
3 - Strengthened partnerships for success: The example of Vanilla Islands
 
4 - Connectivity islands prior to the success of tourism
 
5 - Reunion, host of the conference followed a tourism model based on the value of its exceptional natural and human resources recognized by UNESCO since 2010
The final declaration will be made as a contribution of the small island developing States at Rio 20 worn by the United Nations.

The Minister of Tourism of Seychelles, Alain St. Ange, and president of Vanilla Islands is also committed to working with its partners to include reducing the price of airline tickets to the populations of the member countries of Vanilla Islands.
