PATA and Skal recently signed a Memorandum of Understanding to share knowledge through research and publications, to reciprocate in event participation, to support mutual agreed advocacy positions and to enhance access for the benefit of members of both organisations.

The MOU was signed by PATA CEO Dr. Mario Hardy and Skal International CEO Daniela Otero during the recent 47th Skal Asia Congress in Macao, China.

Dr. Hardy said: “PATA and Skal are very similar in many regards. Like PATA, Skal has a long-storied history having been founded in 1934 and through the years its members have fostered a great spirit of friendship and camaraderie. They are also committed to the development of young tourism professionals and students through Young Skal. This partnership helps align both our missions in developing a responsible tourism industry and look forward to working to with them towards this goal.”

Skal International CEO Daniela Otero said that “the tourism economy in Asia has increased exponentially in recent years and that the agreement was very important for development of Skal in that area.”
