WTA is committed to promoting poverty alleviation through tourism.

The sharing accommodation, through its vigorous development, not only brings economic and social benefits to its destination community, but also contributes to the breaking-down of regional and cultural barriers and building-up of a more open and inclusive society. In 2017, Airbnb, a WTA member, brought into full play its advantages as one of the forerunners of sharing economy and developed a 4-in-1 approach to poverty alleviation that interconnects the business (Airbnb), governments, local communities and expertise. This approach has been adopted in the successful practice of targeted support in the Jinjiang Village of Guilin. The unique role it has demonstrated in the transformation of local production, development of new means of livelihood, protection of ecological environment and inheritance of local ethnical cultures has proven the feasibility to achieve poverty alleviation through tourism in China.

To dig into the important role of sharing economy in poverty alleviation and rural revitalization, WTA, incollaboration with Airbnb, hereby presents the 3rd WTA Member's Day of 2019, taking place from June 13 to 14 in the Guilin City of Guangxi, China.
