aprile 22, 2016 di QUADRI E DIRIGENTI DEL TURISMO by Alberto Correra
International tourism has rapidly expanded over the past 60 years to become one of the fastest growing sectors of the world economy. The year 2015 was yet another record-breaking year for global tourism. The U.N. World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) reported that international tourist arrivals grew by 4.4 percent in 2015 to reach a whopping 1,184 million. The total impact of the tourism sector on the world economy in 2014 was approximately $7,580 billion, or 9.8 percent of world GDP. As the economic outlook for the near future remains bleak, the robust performance of the tourism sector provides the global economy with much-needed vitality and thus greatly contributes to worldwide economic growth and job creation.
