Mexico (Notimex) -- Mexico is a reference in the tourism sector, not only in Latin America but worldwide, said Carlos Vogeler, Executive Director and Secretary of the World Tourism Organization for Membership Relations.
"People around the world are looking at what Mexico is doing, and perhaps Mexicans are not sufficiently aware of the weight they have in the world in terms of contemporary tourism," he said during his speech at a tourism event.
Mexico's tourism strategy is used as a model in several parts of the world, he added.
Mexico's gastronomy is also the only in Latin America with a UNESCO heritage status.
