Baku, Fineko/abc.az. Primary program of " Taste of Silk Way: Gastronomy, Culture and Tourism" international conference has been determined.
The report from Culture and Tourism Ministry says that the conference will be held in Baku on 6-7 September.
The conference will endeavour to bring together representatives from tourism ministries, national tourism offices, tourism officials, experts and grass roots practitioners from across the Silk Road countries with wider international experience.
Globally there is a growing recognition of the importance of food tourism worldwide. As a recent distinctive trend in tourism, food tourism is being embraced by many tourism planners around the world as an opportunity to develop the potential of existing attractions without requiring significant investment in new infrastructure and other facilities.
One of the key objectives of the UNWTO Silk Road programme is the development of sustainable tourism along the Silk Road, building strong links and collaborative initiatives. This conference will help to share examples of best practice across the Silk Road and internationally and raise awareness about food culture as a powerful vehicle for sustainable tourism development. It is meant to be a catalyst of multi-lateral collaboration and taking forward the unified development of the global potential of the Silk Road brand.
