ABUJET is one of the first members of the World Federation of Tourism Journalists and Writers
In 1956 in Sofia a group of journalists writing on tourism established the Bulgarian Association of Journalists and Writers in Tourism - ABUJET. The following year, at a congress in Cologne, the Bulgarian Association was accepted as a member of the World Federation of Journalists and Writers of Tourism - FIJET.
Today more than 60 journalists from leading Bulgarian media are members of ABUJET. The association is among the oldest branch journalistic organizations in our country. Its main task is to unite professionals writing for tourism, as well as to help the development of tourism in the country and abroad.
A fundamental principle grounded in the Charter of both ABUJET and FIJET is freedom of speech and the promotion of human rights on the principles of democracy. At the annual meetings in different continents, journalists from all over the world exchange up-to-date information and look for the most direct ways to establish tourism as an "international language" for cooperation, friendship and mutual assistance, for bringing people, countries, interests and cultures closer.
