WTTC Master_RGBLogosmall-2489The World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) strongly condemns the attack in Ouagadougou, Burkina Faso.

David Scowsill, President & CEO of WTTC, said: “I am deeply saddened to hear of yet another callous terrorist attack that this time has hit the capital of Burkina Faso. Our hearts go out to all the family and friends of all the innocent victims.

The threat of terrorism is a global challenge. It is extremely important for governments and tourism business to continue to implement appropriate security measures. We must continue to support any country that is hit by one of these terrorist attacks. These incidents will not stop people traveling, as the world continues to go about its business.”
