Tourism in OECD Countries 2008 is the first edition of a biennial publication which analyses best practice in OECD and selected non member economies. It surveys a number of initiatives taken by governments and businesses in the tourism field. The report opens with an overview of the key issues and challenges in tourism policy. The second chapter reviews two important aspects of tourism policy in more detail: the impact of global value chains on small- and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) in tourism; and the role of services trade liberalisation in tourism development. The third chapter presents detailed profiles on organisation, budgets, policies, programmes and statistics in tourism for 32 countries.

France

Tourism is an important sector of the French economy. It accounts for 6.3% of GDP and generates some two million direct and indirect jobs in 200 000 companies, most of which are small or medium-sized. In recent years France, which is the world leader in the number of foreign tourist arrivals, has experienced exceptional growth, in particular up until 2001, making tourism activity the front ranking sector of the national economy in terms of the foreign currency inflow generated.
