On December 16th, 2008, on the occasion of the ASUTIL GENERAL ASSEMBLY, a significant modification of the BY-LAW is approved. It consists of an expansion of ASUTIL's area of action incorporating LATIN AMERICA and the CARIBBEAN regions. In addition, other minor changes are made.

In the development of our by-laws we stated our firm intention to maintain the exchange of cooperation with related companies and associations, considering that tourism and its related activities are dynamic inducers of the economic and social development of the region.

In accordance with its statutes, the Association will seek in particular:

  • Sponsor study, research, training, education and investment projects
  • The creation of an Institute of Comparative Law with the purpose of systematizing legislation and information related to Free Shops and disseminate among its members an initiative aimed at establishing a common integrated regime in South America.
  • Orient its members to possible changes in institutional, local and international trends that benefit or hinder the activity.
  • Represent them among the governments of the different countries that make up the area in the promotion and defense of common interests.
  • Disseminate the role of the activity in the national and international atmospheres, carry out research and studies, organize seminars and congresses, communicate its activities through the means that are understood as the most appropriate and all other management leading to the purpose initially indicated.
  • Integrate and/or maintain cooperative and exchange relationships with other national or international associations engaged in related activities.
