Mayor of Busan Metropolitan City

It is my great pleasure to invite you to the 9th TPO General Assembly set to take place in Busan Metropolitan City, Republic of Korea from September 25, 2019 to September 28, 2019.

The 9th TPO General Assembly hosted by the Busan Metropolitan City Government will explore the theme of ‘Common Prosperity in Tourism through Open Partnership.’ Participating TPO member cities with their own unique characteristics, such as nature, culture and art, will have the chance to seek cooperative opportunities to achieve sustainable growth and develop themselves into leading tourism cities.

Along with the Plenary Session and Thematic Session, the General Assembly will feature a range of programs, including a welcome dinner, mayoral luncheon, mayoral roundtable summit, tourism roadshow, bilateral meetings, spouse program, technical tour of Busan, and member cities’ art performances, where the participating cities can come together and enhance their collective network.

The TPO will take this precious opportunity to discuss new projects aimed at further promoting the tourism sector of our member cities in the Asia Pacific region. We will carefully listen to your ideas and suggestions. We believe that the success of the General Assembly will present an opportunity to share our visions, create fruitful outcomes, enhance cooperation, and strengthen the role of the TPO in the international community.

Your participation and support for the 9th TPO General Assembly will be truly appreciated. Thank you.
