Special Report: Travel & Tourism In The New World Order


How will the emerging new world order impact the global travel & tourism industry?

Today, the world is tightly inter-connected but clearly split into three power blocs — one rising, one declining and one comprised of countries caught in the middle. In the years ahead, the inter- and intra-bloc conflicts will have a critical impact on travel & tourism flows. The peace, stability and economic growth that were supposed to have followed the 1989 fall of communism and the dawn of a new century are a distant dream.

Are we in travel & tourism ready for these epic shifts in the global balance of power? Are we doomed only to react and respond? Or can we learn to prepare, preempt and prevent? Can we influence change rather than be continuously influenced by it?

An incisive and in-depth report to be published by Travel Impact Newswire will offer some answers.

These answers are drawn entirely from the powerful speeches and statements made by world leaders at the 66th United Nations Annual General Assembly session held between 22-29 September 2011.

In nearly 200 speeches at the General Assembly, the first one of the second decade of the 21st century, the leaders spoke out forcefully on a range of economic, environmental, geopolitical, social and cultural issues.

All spoke with passion and commitment. They voiced frustrations, expressed hopes, sounded warnings, introduced new initiatives and offered ideas for positive change. Sharp differences in policies and perspectives amongst them also were apparent.

After poring through the several hundred man-hours worth of oratory, Travel Impact Newswire Executive Editor Imtiaz Muqbil has distilled all the key issues into a concise, easily readable report.

No travel industry journalist has ever undertaken such an exercise.

The report is designed to help time-starved travel & tourism leaders and senior executives better plan for what’s ahead. It will help them look beyond social media, climate change and economic gyrations.

This is the first of numerous such ground-breaking reports to be produced in accordance with the Travel Impact Newswire mission statement of challenging conventional wisdoms and providing alternative perspectives.

Available for sale at US$250, the report will be published on Oct 21. Orders received within one week of this announcement will be charged at a promotional rate of US$199 + 7% VAT.
