image of Tourism in OECD Countries 2008
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.

Italy

The vital role that tourism plays in the Italian economy is demonstrated by the foreign exchange registered by the Italian Foreign Exchange Office (UIC) and the Italian National Bank. This is expected to reach an all-time record of EUR 30 billion in 2006. The growth in foreign earnings announced by UIC is even greater than that for the international market and considerably larger than that for Western Europe.
