About WTO Publications

The World Tourism Organization is the only intergovernmental organization established to offer an appropriate framework for the international consideration of tourism policy matters as well as other subjects of interest to the sector. Its global mission is to support sustainable tourism development yielding wealth, creating employment, and promoting better understanding between human beings worldwide of all races and religions.

One of WTO’s most important functions is to serve as a permanent source of information for its Members and the world community. WTO fulfils this task in part through its extensive programme of publications and the recently launched programme of electronic products. The broad span of these products corresponds to the vast sweep both of the Organization’s concerns and of the needs of its Members.

WTO aims to expand the scope, coverage, and quality of our publications and electronic products, as well as the number of editions available in French, Spanish, Russian, and other languages. The Secretariat always welcomes feedback about any WTO product.
