The Tourism Sector’s Contribution to The Wider Economy

What Does This Mean for Tourism Value Add?

Tourism Value added is generated directly or indirectly by a large number of very diverse actors, who may have different interests. While companies want to make profits, public institutions should have the interests of citizens at heart, and nature conservation groups want to protect natural resources. Development projects related to tourism will always be confronted with a broad range of different interests. To enable tourism actors to collaborate in a targeted manner to derive added value in the long term, it is important to take into consideration and reconcile the different interests.
