Marketing and Sales – The Art of Finding the Right Words

Since the 1990s, consumers have become increasingly environmentally conscious, critical and responsible. As a result, the demands made on tourism products have also risen: Dirty beaches, garbage in the sea or noisy hotel rooms are no longer accepted. Environmentally-friendly and healthy products, peace and safety are sought after. The article shows ways in which travel agencies can proactively communicate the topic of sustainability and successfully sell sustainable travel.

Myanmar Responsible Tourism Policy

In hardly any other country tourism is growing as fast as in Myanmar. However, the rapid and largely uncontrolled development prompts fears that it will sooner or later lead to negative effects on people and the environment. The "Myanmar Responsible Tourism Policy" attempts to counteract this by providing policy-makers with an orientation framework for sustainable tourism development in Myanmar.

The Importance of the Private Sector for a Green Economy – Tourism as an Instrument for Sustainable Economic Development

The article is based on the thesis that the tourism value chain offers a multitude of opportunities to achieve long-term employment effects in developing countries and actively contribute to poverty reduction. However, one prerequisite is that tourism development is not purely profit- and growth-oriented, but rather that it takes social, cultural and ecological concerns, possible problem areas and influencing factors into account from the very beginning.
