eTN Staff Writer  Nov 28, 2008

MADRID, Spain – UNWTO secretary-general Francesco Frangialli has condemned the series of deadly terrorist attacks in Mumbai, India’s commercial capital and largest city.

“Please accept my condolences for the dastardly attacks in Mumbai and for the tragic loss of life that has occurred,” Mr. Frangialli said in a letter to India’s Tourism Minister Ambika Soni Soni, who chairs UNWTO’s executive council.

“I want to put at your disposal all UNWTO resources in any way that may be of assistance to you.”

Tourism is among the wider economic interests of India, which is among the world’s emerging tourism motors and the dominant destination in South Asia on the back of a remarkable economic boom.
