GSTC began designating valuable GSTC partners as Country Representative in 2014 to serve as the “eyes and ears” and in many ways the voices of GSTC in their respective countries or regions. They have played a valuable role, helping stakeholders better understand and engage with the GSTC.

The GSTC Country Representative Program will cease at the end of 2019.

GSTC Would like to thank the Country Representatives for their support and commitment to sustainable tourism and the GSTC.

Those that served as GSTC Country Representatives continue to be part of the GSTC as Regional Director, Members of the GSTC Board of DirectorsGSTC Trainers, and GSTC Members.
