SEOUL (eTN) – The former prime minister of the United Kingdom and Northern Ireland, Tony Blair, delivered this year’s keynote address for the second regional summit by the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC), which is currently being held in the South Korean capital.

Important in its economy, important to its society, important in opening it up to the world and sharing different cultures and traditions. Important, of course, in jobs and opportunities.
