The tourism sector, a vital driver of job-creation and growth, is under pressure. Facing an increasingly competitive landscape, tourism in many OECD countries has started to lag, in both growth rate and productivity. This book defines the major trends and challenges facing tourism in the next decade – from globalisation to environmental issues. To address these challenges, the book then provides specific policy guidance and recommendations for making tourism more competitive and environmentally sustainable. Tourism data from 42 countries are presented and analysed including all OECD countries, and fast-growing tourism centres such as Brazil, Chile, China and India.




The past five years witnessed a fundamental change in Egypt’s economic policies following the appointment of a reform-minded economic team in July 2004. Since then, the government of Egypt adopted a series of financial and tax reforms, monetary policy adjustments, broadening the private sector’s contribution to economic activities by activating asset management programmes and simplifying investment procedures. In line with the overall positive economic performance, the tourism sector has also regained the same momentum and realised outstanding achievements in terms of volume, value added and foreign revenues.
