First of all, on behalf of all Diplomatic Corps. who attends this morning to join the gorgeous opening ceremony, I as Honduras Amb. to the Republic of Korea would like to express our sincere thanks for inviting us to this meaningful & significant Korea International Tourism Show 2019.
We believe that the people and the government's increasing demand of the outlook and spendings on tourism industry due to broader range of leisure lifestyle, have led to many openings to tourism exhibition with each nation's unique specialties all over the world. Nevertheless, I think that with rich sources of historic, cultural and natural properties along with the firmly provided tourism related business environment and infrastructure, Korea should be mainstay of world tourism industry.
We Diplomatic Corps. heard that the hosts and organizations of Korea International Tourism Show 2019 present a one-stop tourism business place and outbound contents on culture and medical, beauty tourism business to create tourism industry clusters and added value.
In that regard, we Diplomatic Corps. would like to send our great expectations on the fact that it provides not only a coherent tourism information and active consultation environment but also a festive tourism industry market composing of diverse tourism-related contents including various events and programmes held together with Korea International Tourism Show 2019.
Delivering our sincere thanks once again for the hosts and organizations of Korea International Tourism Show 2019, I would like to recommend all visitors today also to explore the beauty of Honduras by visiting our country in the near future if possible. Thank you,
