Cuban Tourism Minister Juan Carlos Garcia, in his opening remarks, thanked the participants and organizers of the event for the opportunity to hold the event and show everything the Caribbean nation is doing to move forward in the transformation towards a more inclusive destination.

Cuba wants to be recognized not only for its safety, culture and the beauty of its landscapes and beaches, but also for other attributes such as its accessibility, he said.

He ratified the country’s political will to promote the necessary actions for that purpose and pointed out that although that purpose requires investment, the fundamental thing is training, to turn the tourist experience into a truly inclusive and pleasant one. “We are certain that this event will be a wonderful opportunity to exchange best practices in accessible tourism at the international level and a solid step towards guaranteeing the enjoyment of all, regardless of people’s abilities and conditions,” he added.

The secretary general of the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO), Zurab Pololikashvili, sent a video greeting to users, service providers, heads of public agencies and participating universities, and stressed the importance of the meeting.

He especially congratulated Cuba for its efforts in the tourism sector and especially in this field, which show that the issue is part of the country’s political agenda. Next year we will see each other on the island, the UNWTO secretary general assured.

The IV Summit began yesterday with a private working session, in which representatives of organizations and tourism officials from the Ibero-American area shaped what will be the final declaration of the meeting.
