The 99th UNWTO Session was held in Samarkand in October 1st - 4th.
The session was attended by the CEO of the International Center of Wine and Gastronomy Elena Baibakova who arrived to Samarkand with the Russian delegation.
UNWTO (United Nations World Tourism Organization) is created in 1974. It is the leading international organization in the field of tourism. Currently it consists of 156 countries.
It should be noted that the venue to carry out the session of the UNWTO was not chosen randomly. Twenty years ago the Samarkand Declaration of the countries-participants of the international project on the development of tourism along the Silk Road was adopted and since 2004 there has been a Regional centre of UNWTO in Samarkand.
