The thoughts of the World Travel & Tourism Council and the global travel family are with everyone affected by the events at the DusitD2 complex in Nairobi, Kenya.
Travel & Tourism is a sector which brings prosperity to countries around the world and enjoyment to billions of travellers each year. It is remarkably resilient to shocks but attacks on tourists, holidaymakers and businesses are unacceptable.
Kenya is a jewel in the crown of Africa’s tourism industry attracting millions of visitors each year, supported by a Government wholly committed to Travel & Tourism as a means of creating jobs and alleviating poverty.
We express great relief that the situation has now been resolved by the Kenyan authorities.
We offer our sympathies for all of those still impacted by these terrible events and our full support to the Kenyan Travel & Tourism community to begin the process of renewal.
