VATICAN CITY, OCT 5, 2004 (VIS) - The second meeting of the World Committee on Tourism Ethics started yesterday in Madrid, Spain, the headquarters of the World Tourism Organization which has sponsored this meeting, according to a communique from the office of the Holy See permanent observer to the WTO, Msgr. Piero Monni.

  The agenda of the three-day meeting includes discussion of  the problems linked to the application of the World Code of Ethics for Tourism, and an evaluation of the results obtained up to now in the field of tourism ethics. The world code was approved by the WTO in October 1999 at their meeting in Santiago, Chile. The meeting of this world committee, adds the communique, represents a fundamental thrust for the realization of a truly operative code in the face of complaints that the current code is not being applied in many sectors of tourism.

  The Madrid meeting is a further step towards developing and promoting a lofty concept of tourism which, in turn, can be a vehicle of peace, dialogue and knowledge among peoples. The Holy See representative, Msgr. Monni, who was present at the first meeting of the World Committee on Tourism Ethics, is also attending the session in Spain.
