WHY TOURISM MATTERS

According to UNWTO, over the past six decades, tourism has experienced continued expansion and diversification, to become one of the largest and fastest-growing economic sectors in the world. An ever-increasing number of destinations worldwide have opened up to, and invested in tourism, turning it into a key driver of socio-economic progress through the creation of jobs and enterprises, export revenues, and infrastructure development.

The number international tourists has grown from 25 million in 1950 to 1235 million in 2016.  Today Tourism represents 10 % of GDP, 1 in 10 jobs and 7% of the world exports. More data are available at the UNWTO Tourism Highlights 2017 Edition
