salih cene skal International presidentAfter serving at all levels for the last 32 years, immediate past Councilor for Turkey and a senior tourism professional Salih Cene has been elected as the Director of Skal International (SI).

The election took place today at Skal International (SI) Annual Congress which is taking place in Turku/Finland between 18 and 23 September.

Salih Cene said, “I believe that Skal International should play an important role in developments and changes in tourism. I agree that Skal should be a trusted voice in the tourism industry and should emphasise responsible tourism. In order to take our place as a trusted advisory body,   Skal’s status should be well explained to the world of tourism.”

“The most important asset that differentiates Skal International from other organizations is its membership mosaic. Not only its presence in five continents and over 90 countries, but also its wide range of membership categories that no other tourism organization has under one roof (tour operators, hoteliers, airline representatives, guides, tourism press and many more).

This wide representation should make Skal a trusted voice within World Tourism, especially in two areas.  Skal could use this position to set:

–  the “Code of Ethics” in the Travel & Tourism Industry.

–  the principles of business between various sectors of the Travel & Tourism Industry (eg. standards for contracts and operational rules between Travel Trade, Hotels, Airlines, etc.)

By achieving these two missions, Skal may also become the arbitrator in national and international disputes in the Travel & Tourism Industry.
