Turkiye Signs Deal With GSTC

Türkiye has signed a collaboration agreement with the Global Sustainable Tourism Council (GSTC). The signing of the agreement marks an exemplary step toward sustainability, as Türkiye’s government becomes the first in the world to sign an agreement to develop a national program with GSTC.

The Turkish tourism industry will be restructured as part of the three-year agreement signed with GSTC, which sets the best and most widespread standards in sustainable tourism.

In the first stage of the agreement, national program criteria will be established and inspection firms will receive training. As of the first week of February, Turkish tourism stakeholders will also join the program.

The first stage of the program, planned to be wholly concluded by 2030, will become operational in 2023; and the second stage will be carried out during 2024 and 2025. By 2030, all international standards will be met.
