APETIT Marco Polo Programme

APETIT Marco Polo Programme

The Network of APETIT was promoted and established by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Asia and the Pacific (UNESCAP) in September 1997. The purpose of the Network is to strengthen the institutional capabilities of various countries’ tourism training, education and research institutes, to encourage cooperation among them and to overcome the quantitative and qualitative shortages of human resources in the tourism industry.

To facilitate student exchanges among the member institutions, a new initiative “APETIT Marco Polo Programme” was proposed in 11th Executive Committee Meeting in Melbourne (Australia), further discussed in 12th Executive Committee Meeting and endorsed in 4th General Council Meeting in Hanoi (Vietnam).
