The 11th session of Islamic Conference of Tourism Ministers of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) under the theme “Role of Local Communities in Tourism Development will be held at the Republic of Azerbaijan in Baku, reported 24NewsHD TV channel. 

OIC summit will be held from 27 to 29 June this year.

The session will focus on advancing the Roadmap for Development of Islamic Tourism in OIC Member States, in the wake of decline in international #tourism receipts, mainly stemming from the travel restrictions and other widespread measures to contain the spread of the COVID-19.

OIC said that estimates show that, compared to 2019, the OIC countries, as a group, hosted 73 percent fewer international tourists and earned 64 percent less tourism receipts in 2020.

The Ministerial Conference will review the report of the Secretary-General on the implementation of the OIC Framework on tourism, evaluate the annual celebration of OIC City of Tourism and propose programs to facilitate mass and colorful celebration of the year-long events.

The OIC Tourism Ministers will also review progress on some tourism projects by several OIC Member States and Institutions, assess development on the organization of the OIC Tourism Fairs, and develop common strategy for the successful organization of the fairs.
