Salta obtains the Safe Travels Stamp
It is the first province of our country to join the list of international destinations that have obtained the distinction awarded by the World Travel and Tourism Council through Inprotur
Present at the delivery of this distinction were the Minister of Tourism and Sports of the Nation, Matías Lammens; the Executive Secretary of Inprotur, Ricardo Sosa; the president of the Federal Tourism Council, Claudia Grynszpan; the president of the Argentine Chamber of Tourism, Aldo Elias; and the Minister of Tourism and Sports of Salta, Mario Peña.
Matías Lammens pointed out that "the granting of this distinction confirms the work that is being carried out in the province, they are doing a fantastic task so that Salta becomes one of the most important destinations not only in Argentina but also in the region ”.
He added that "all provinces and the private sector are expected to join this seal to continue positioning Argentina as a safe destination that meets international standards to receive tourism."
Aldo Elías stated that "from the Argentine Chamber of Tourism we are working to create more confidence in the country's destinations and that the largest number of companies that provide tourism services, such as provinces and destinations, adhere to this seal."
In this context, Ricardo Sosa highlighted that “through this seal, which Argentina has already obtained, and in this case the province of Salta is added, travelers will be able to recognize the destinations that have adopted global protocols in health matters for the realization of safe trips ”.
The president of the Federal Tourism Council highlighted the joint work of the entire tourism sector at this time of crisis and specifically in the search for solutions such as the development of all the protocols for the activity.
This distinction was developed by the WTTC with the aim of regaining the trust of global travelers and ensuring the adoption of internationally aligned protocols. So far more than 50 countries and 150 destinations have already received it.
The delivery of this seal in our country is articulated through the National Institute for Tourism Promotion in coordination with the Federal Council of Tourism, the Argentine Chamber of Tourism and the National Tourism Quality Undersecretariat.
The WTTC, a global body of the private travel and tourism sector, designed the seal with the aim of collaborating in the reopening process for the activity in a responsible and safe manner, once the local authorities determine that the conditions exist to do so.
