Dear visitors

I am Kim Seong-il, President of Korea Ecotourism Society.

I would like to invite all of you to Ecotourism and Sustainable
Tourism Conference (ESTC) 2017 in Ansan.

The conference will be a meaningful event in several ways.

First of all, it will be held in Asia for the first time.
Asia and 24 countries across Northeast, Southeast and South Asia, extend to the areas of
21,500,000㎢ and account for about 4 billion population or 60% of global population.

Also it is the region where 70% of those living in poverty are located.
In Asia, ecotourism is emerging as a viable vehicle to preserve biodiversity and fight against poverty.

Second, Ansan city has unique nature where habitat of diverse species and naturalness of
environment are well preserved.

Part of the city includes artificially created wetland but still, it is the place where the largest group of migrant birds are coming and staying.
It is a venue for ESTC where you can see how a place near metropolitan cities can grow into a site of ecotourism.

Lastly, it will be an opportunity to discuss how ICT (information and communication technology) can contribute to sustainable development
of ecotourism in Korea, the global ICT leader.

It will be a chance to assess possibility of providing education and training programs for ecotourism experts and students in
Asia and across the world with low cost but high quality, leveraging ICT platform.

I am looking forward to seeing you and having in-depth discussing on the future of ecotourism and sustainable development of our
society in Ansan, Korea September 2017.

Once again I would like to invite you all to the conference.

Thank you
