Malta | MTA Chairman Dr Gavin Gulia appointed as a Member on the Board of Directors of the European Travel Commission

Malta Tourism Authority Chairman, Dr Gavin Gulia, will be representing Malta as a Member on the Board of Directors of the European Travel Commission (ETC) for the next two years.
The European Travel Commission (ETC) was established in 1948 and is the association representing the National Tourism Organizations of the European countries with the mission of strengthening the sustainable development of Europe as a tourist destination. In the last several decades, ETC has positioned itself at the forefront of the European tourism scene, establishing its expertise and building up partnerships in areas of tourism, based on promotion, market intelligence and best practice sharing.

In 2011, ETC and the European Commission agreed to work jointly to maintain Europe’s position as the world’s leading tourist destination and to support the sustainable competitive development of the sector by exchanging tourism knowledge and research and promoting socially and environmentally viable models for tourism activity both in Europe and globally. Since 2012, the European Commission has entrusted ETC with yearly ad-hoc grants for the implementation of a programme of promotional actions aimed at bringing new visitors from targeted third countries to Europe.

Additionally, ETC also collaborates with other EU institutions such as the European Parliament in its efforts to further advance and improve tourism policies at EU level.

Malta Hotels and Restaurants Association (MHRA) congratulates Dr Gavin Gulia and look forward to keep on working together for the improvement of the Travel and Tourism sector.
