I am a CEO and owner of Promotour Mauritius, one of the leading DMC in Mauritius. I have over 30 years of experience in tourism. I have a diploma in management. Throughout my professional career, I have been working with FIT and groups, MICE, and leisure tourism. In those years I developed good cooperation with numerous tour operators in Europe, North Africa, and the Middle East, with the biggest accent put on the Central and Eastern Europe.
This situation which we have worldwide for few months strongly shows us that the tourism world should be united. We need to cooperate by talking to each other, sharing ideas, and together put our efforts to rebuild tourism.
I believe that one of our main targets now should be concentrating on sustainable tourism and taking care of the planet and nature. We need to encourage tourism professionals and furthermore the tourists to take certain actions which will help to protect the environment and local communities.
