Tourism is the custodian of world peace, but can tourism survive or keep under control a spread of the Russian Ukrainian War?

On Tuesday, SKAL International President Burcin Turkkan will moderate a Q&A on tourism and the refugee crisis in Ukraine, as well as activities in neighboring Romania.

Co-moderated by Juergen Steinmetz, Chairman of the World Tourism Network, and Dr. Peter Tarlow, a security expert for the Travel News Group, this important and timely discussion expects two important VIP guests.

Florian Tancu is the President of SKAL Bucharest and the General Director of WECO Travel Romania.

Ivan Liptuga, the former Director of Tourism & Resorts, Department Of Ukraine, National Tourism Organization of Ukraine, will be contributing depending on his security situation at the time of the event.

The travel and tourism industry with the rest of the civilized world is looking in horror at the war in Ukraine and the international refugee crisis unfolding because of it.

Romania has been at the forefront of welcoming Ukrainian refugees to this EU country.
SKAL and WTN both agree on the importance of tourism being a custodian of world peace.
