The World Tourism Day is celebrated annually on 27th of September to raise awareness among the international community on the importance of tourism and its social, cultural, political and economic value.  The day is observed with different themes every year and the theme for 2020 is “Tourism and Rural Development”.

The following quote from the Secretary General of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) summarizes the importance of rural development and how tourism can be crucial for rural development.
