According to the United Nations World Tourism Organization, tourism provides one in 10 jobs globally, and even more in developing countries. In the Caribbean, for instance, it directly or indirectly creates nearly one in every five jobs. The Conference on Jobs & Inclusive Growth: Partnerships for Sustainable Tourism will explore how tourism can "create good jobs, provide opportunities for inclusion and education, and assist in preserving cultural heritage and the environment." NextBillion will be a media partner at the event.
