Chief Adviser Dr Fakhruddin Ahmed on Friday said Bangladesh is gifted with the bounty of nature and abundance of beauty and these natural resources can contribute immensely to the promotion of tourism industry of the country.

Though Bangladesh is new as a tourist destination, it has already made a berth in the world tourism map with its unique characteristics, he said in a message on the eve of the World Tourism Day.

“Cox’s Bazar and the Sundarbans are in the top positions in the run-up to the seven natural wonders of the world. I would like to call upon all to keep voting for them through internet until December 2009 to retain these positions,” Dr Fakhruddin said.

He said this year’s theme of the day ‘Tourism Responding to the Challenge of Climate Change’ is very appropriate and timely as climate change poses a great threat to the existence of our mother planet.

The Chief Adviser said unlimited and non-eco-friendly tourism developments greatly contribute to the climate change.

“We have to boost the tourism industry in a sustainable manner.” He wished all success of the World Tourism Day.
