The World Tourism Day celebrations have been led by the United Nations World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) since 1970.

The theme of the day in 2017 was “sustainable tourism” while in 2018 had it as, “Tourism and the Digital Transformation”.

It may be noted that India’s rank on the Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index for 2019 rose to 34 from 40—the biggest jump by any country on the index this year. India is also now the only lower-middle income country in the top 35 tourism destinations, according to the World Economic Forum.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column][/vc_row]
