OECD Tourism Trends and Policies 2016

Tourism Trends and Policies, published biennially, analyses tourism performance and major policy trends, initiatives and reforms across 50 OECD countries and partner economies, providing up-to-date tourism data and analysis. The report is an international reference and benchmark on how effectively countries are supporting competitiveness, innovation and growth in tourism.

Tourism has successfully weathered the effects of the global economic crisis, and active tourism policies have played an essential role in supporting a competitive and sustainable tourism economy. The 2016 edition captures these ongoing trends - presenting standardised data covering domestic, inbound and outbound tourism, enterprises and employment, and internal tourism consumption - and reports on how seamless transport can enhance the tourism experience, as well as the opportunities, challenges and implications of the sharing economy for tourism.

Hide / Show Abstract

The importance of domestic and inbound tourism for the Dutch economy is increasing, with tourism growth exceeding the growth of the total economy in the last five years. In 2014, tourist spending in the Dutch economy grew by 4.1 % to EUR 68.3 billion. This accounts for 3.7% of Dutch GDP in 2014, compared to 3.5 % in 2013. Tourism related employment also grew by 2.5 % to 606 000 jobs in 2014, which equals 366 000 full-time equivalents (or 5.2% of total employment).
