Investing in the sustainable and equitable growth of travel and tourism in Asia Pacific through human capital development.
TOURISM IS REBUILDING AND NEEDS QUALIFIED STAFF
There are 300 million unemployed youth in the region. But, because of limited access to education opportunities many lack basic employment skills.
We are investing in capacity, providing critical employability skills to optimize potential and motivate youth for success.
The tourism industry in Asia Pacific is facing uncertain times.
Temporary COVID-19 restrictions on international travel, have posed unimaginable challenges to employers and threaten the livelihoods of hospitality workers and communities across the region. According to a June 2020 report by the World Bank, the pandemic will prevent 24 million people in Asia Pacific from escaping poverty who were expected to do so in 2020. In service economies, where employment and growth are fueled by tourism and hospitality, the recovery of this sector will be crucial to reversing this trend.
For those struggling to lift themselves out of poverty, tourism and hospitality still offers a realistic path
