Why Tourism and Trade?

For many transitioning and emerging economies, tourism is the primary source of income or is becoming a growth sector. 

According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization, "Over the decades, tourism has experienced continued growth and deepening ‎diversification to become one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world. ‎Modern tourism is closely linked to development and encompasses a growing number ‎of new destinations. These dynamics have turned tourism into a key driver for socio-‎economic progress.‎" 

As a firm committed to fostering understanding and sustainable peace, supporting governmental entities, small businesses, and corporations in this sector makes sense. Konesens Development provides training, program development, and trade promotion for the tourism sector and related supplier industries.
