ST-EP Partners

The implementation of the various ST-EP activities would not have been possible without the contribution of several countries and institutions.

The Government of the Republic of Korea was a pioneer partner in the launching of the ST-EP Initiative, by offering an initial contribution to host and establish the UNWTO ST-EP Foundation in Seoul. Since then, significant progress has been made in the consolidation and expansion of public-private partnerships for the ST-EP Initiative.

Additional support from Governments, development agencies and other organizations will enable UNWTO to further expand the ST-EP Initiative and help make the tourism sector work for the poor.
