World Tourism Day 2021: World Tourism Day is observed globally on September 27. The day highlights the travel industry's social, economic, political, and cultural significance. Tourism is one of the most relevant sectors globally as it employs millions of people, which makes them dependent on it for their livelihood. According to United Nations (UN), the tourism sector employs one in every ten people on Earth, and for some countries, it can represent over 20 per cent of their GDP.

This year World Tourism Day holds more significance as the theme is 'Tourism for Inclusive Growth'. As the world opens up once again with fewer restrictions, the theme focuses on the importance of inclusive recovery and ensuring that no one is left behind. Additionally, the day also highlights the importance of the travel industry in preserving and promoting culture and heritage. The official website of UN said, "UNWTO ensures every part of the sector has a say in its future - including communities, minorities, youth and those who would otherwise be at risk of being left behind."
