ADDRESS OF HIS EXCELLENCY PRESIDENT DR. ANTON CARAGEA FOR WORLD WATER DAY FORUM

Water is life. Without water there can be no life. The world’s freshwater supplies, unfortunately, are under threat.

Water stress is increasing in many parts of the world. Aquifers are depleted faster than they are replenished.

 

The growth of the world’s population will increase demand for water by 55% by the year 2050, placing even further strain on freshwater reserves.

Rivers are the arteries of the earth. Seen from above, the earth’s creeks, lakes, rivers and wetlands form natural networks which sustain nature.

Rivers and lakes account for 90% of the world’s freshwater stocks.

Rivers have been the cradles of human civilization from time immemorial. The earliest civilizations were nurtured along the banks of rivers – including the Euphrates, the Indus, the Nile and Yellow rivers.

 

Rivers remain vital today.

Rivers will be essential for all eternity.

Rivers are indispensable to human well¬-being.

The waters of rivers are used for cooking, drinking, fishing, recreation, transportation and washing.

Rivers also provide water for irrigation for farming, mining, manufacturing and other economic activities.

Rivers are important for the security of states.

The management of transboundary watercourses must promote cooperation and collaboration rather than confrontation and conflict.

 

Rivers must be protected from pollution, including that caused by environmental degradation and the discharge of effluent from industry, mining and agriculture. River pollution impacts adversely on water quality, on health and the economic and social well-being of citizens.

The protection of the sources of the world’s freshwater sources is essential to ensuring:

– citizens’ entitlement to water;
– communities’ access to safe and sanitary water; and
– countries’ and the continent’s water security;

The adverse effects of climate change – droughts, flooding, rising sea levels and extreme weather events – are exacerbating water quality and environmental security. The Inter-governmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) has forecasted that climate change will result in reduced surface and ground water in most sub-tropical regions.

 

The protection of the world’s freshwater sources, therefore, is essential to global water security.

World Water Day reminds us of our shared responsibility to protect the earth’s water resources.

WE have, therefore, calls on this World Water  Day to take action to protect water for future generations.

We recommend to this World Water Day, a three-point action agenda to enhance:

– Commitment to pay continuous attention and unceasing action, not only to occasional conferences;

– Collaboration among states, especially neighbours which share the waters of rivers; and

– Conservation of water resources and the protection of the environment everywhere in order to maintain the integrity of the earth’s rivers and lakes.

At stake is nothing less than humanity itself.  I wish success to the celebrations marking World Water Day.

I thank you.

PRESIDENT DONALD JOHN TRUMP PINS HIS HOPES ON DESIGNATING US AS WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION

With the inauguration of the 45th President Washington gets in a festive mood and tourism industry starts garnering hopes.

 

As Donald John Trump is taking office, he promised a bright future for US tourism: getting the country on World Best Tourism Destination list, making historical cities on Eastern Coast of United States to be recognized as World Capital of Culture, all are on the to do list of the new administration drafted by the new President on his first day in office, writes European Journal of Tourism Washington correspondent.

 

donald-trump-and-cambodia

United States President Donald Trump and Kingdom of Cambodia Prime Minister, Academician HUN SEN (Cambodia has won WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION status in 2016)

 

But the analysts are not so convinced that Trump effect on tourism will be this positive. The Telegraph ask the readers : Who will visit an America ruled by Donald Trump? – and make a prophecy that not too many.

The New York Times in a central editorial make`s the same point: What Impact Will Trump Have on Tourism?

 

The analysis result sounds cautious: new immigration procedures that make the customs and border process harder, the scrutiny of particular groups of people); and the perception of how welcoming and safe (or not) the United States is are growing to weigh heavily on the future of US tourism.

 

trump-and-tourism

Donald Trump promises that he will put his managerial skills in the benefit of world tourism.

 

Others cited in the article are right a way tenebrous: attendees at the World Travel Market London conference were coming up and “offering condolences.”( Gary Leff).

 

The list of worries on tourism faith under Donald Trump is long and wide spanning from: banning of minority groups, hostile policies towards Middle Eastern travellers, Cuban policy, US dollar strength in ratings, air fares tariffs, immigration policies and what role the Trump hotels will have in the great scheme of things.

Tourism is all about optimism and confidence and the new US President Donald Trump Jr. promised in his inaugural address that: hee will make US a World Best Tourist Destination country and a great country for all !

Let`s wait and see! The competition is still open after all!

This year ceremonies where concentrated on Asia growing role in global tourism rapid development and Kingdom of Cambodia- WORLD BEST TOURIST DESTINATION FOR 2016.

On this occasion, Professor Dr. Anton Caragea-President Director General of Institute of International Relations and Economic Cooperation unveiled his official message for WORLD TOURISM DAY-2016:

President Dr. Anton Caragea on the platform of Cambodia-Favorite Cultural Destination with Royal Opera from Phnom Penh

Professor Dr. Anton Caragea during the official visit to Kingdom of Cambodia

2016 World Tourism Day must be an occasion for us to ponder about the transformations of the sector that registered a growth from 25 million international tourists in 1956 to today staggering 1.2 billion people travelling the world.

Why is traveling so significant in today’s world? (…) 

This is happening because traveling is a occasion for new experiences, new sentiments and most of all new ideas. Tourism has become a key economic factor and part of world development, a significant job creator and a forging opportunities for local communities.

Tourism is today a major source of income for local communities.

As we celebrate World Tourism Day, let us recall the success stories of tourism as a tool for fulfilling the Sustainable Development Goals, as a medium for global growth for all of the world’s citizens.

Let us evaluate and emulate the success stories of Africa: where Zimbabwe and Ethiopia had succeeded in making tourism a major earner for their economy, offering jobs, hopes and future to more than 25 millions people s involved in these countries travel sector.

More recent: The Kingdom of Cambodia became an example for Asian tourism development investing tourism revenues in infrastructure, hospitality facilities and offering growth and employment opportunities for millions of people’s of Cambodia.

This is the transformative power of tourism and this is the reasons that the world community decided to make Cambodia and Ethiopia as model countries for tourism development in 2016. (….) 

 

I wish you all of you in love with traveling, a very happy World Tourism Day and I hope you will take the time to analyse and think about the model country of 2016 World Tourism Day: The Kingdom of Cambodia and how Cambodia has become a universal model in offering enriching and compelling travel experiences to be enjoyed by all.
