On the occasion of World Tourism Day, established to be celebrated on September 27 by World Tourism Organization, the Association of Tourist Enterprises of Cyprus (STEK) underlined the crucial role that tourism plays in the economic, social and cultural development of local communities.

At a time when the world economy faces rapid challenges, tourism is playing a catalytic role in the economic recovery and prosperity of Cyprus, being an important pillar of boosting entrepreneurship, creating new jobs and contributing to shaping opportunities for a better future.

In an effort to raise public awareness and contribute to the development of sustainable tourism development, STEK has collaborated with Cyprus Tourism Organisation and Cyprus Post to create an anniversary stamp dedicated to tourism.
