  • Published by Ozgur Tore

wttc2The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) expressed its shock and sadness at the abhorrent events in Nice, France on 14 July 2016, and the terrible loss of life.

David Scowsill, President & CEO, WTTC, said: “It is with great sadness that the world hears of another attack in France. We express our heartfelt condolences to the friends and family of the victims of this callous attack. France is the natural home of international tourism - the most visited destination in the world. With this attack on its day of national celebration of the principles of liberty, equality, and brotherhood - the same principles championed by Travel & Tourism - our sector stands in unity with the people of Nice and France.
