Ladies and Gentlemen, Distinguished Guests and Students, Good afternoon. I am honored to address this gathering of PATTS Tourism Society as we convene the 16th Tourism General Assembly entitled “Education for Touristic Tourism” here at our Chairman’s Penthouse. PATTS Tourism Society is committed to actively raise the quality of activities and experience for every tourism student. We want all of you to achieve their full potential to become a competitive professionals in this career. Moreover, PATTS Tourism Society will foster activities and programs that will stimulate and enhance your skills in this field . In our eagerness to serve the interest of the tourism students, we have always displayed a thorough activities and have made every effort to develop new ideas and activities which, in one way or another, have contributed promoting and enhancing tourism here at PATTS have its edge among other institutions. Our task is to make it possible. Our mission is to provide practical, step by step reinforcement through the activities provided by our organization.
This year our theme is Tourmaline. Tourmalines are gems with an incomparable variety of colors. Just like Tourism, it is one of the gems of our country, which is full of colors. And as Tourism advocates we must learn how to efficiently use our resources.
We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open. So I commend that we should all live by the saying, “A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step”. So now, prepare yourself to be challenged, excited and inspired. I want to say once more on behalf of the PATTS Tourism Society organizing committee, welcome to the home of the most beautiful and handsome students of PATTS College of Aeronautics. It's a pleasure to see so...
