Albania is hosting an international forum aimed at promoting sustainable tourism as a main source of revenue.
The United Nations-supported “Future of Environmental and Sustainable Tourism in Albania” forum brought officials from the Western Balkans and southern Europe to the Albanian capital on Tuesday to promote regional tourism.
United Nations World Tourism Organization official Zurab Pololikashvili urged Balkan countries to join together into a single tourism destination to better compete with large markets like China, the United States or the Gulf countries.
