Esta pesquisa teve como objetivo geral analisar as contribuições do turismo à economia brasileira, considerando-se a sua estrutura produtiva de 1999. Para isso, procurou-se caracterizar as relações intersetoriais e mensurar os impactos da variação na demanda final sobre produto, emprego e renda, destacando-se os setores que compõem o segmento do turismo. Procurou-se, também, dimensionar esse segmento em termos de produto interno bruto e pessoal ocupado. Para realização deste trabalho, foi necessário desagregar a matriz de insumo-produto construída para o país em setores que foram considerados turísticos e não-turísticos. Na análise foram utilizados, dentre outros, o método dos índices de ligações de Hirschmann-Rasmussem, o enfoque do campo de influência, os índices puros de ligações e os multiplicadores. Os índices de ligações intersetoriais permitiram a identificação dos setores-chave, considerando-se o modelo de insumo-produto aqui construído e o nível de agregação utilizado. Dentre os setores classificados como setores-chave, utilizando-se o conceito mais abrangente, seis foram inicialmente considerados como componentes do segmento do turismo: transporte aéreo regular, transporte aéreo não-regular...

Este estudo objetiva compreender a dinâmica origem-destino dos fluxos turísticos a partir de seus fatores causais. Para explicar esse fenômeno, são propostas algumas adaptações dos princípios da gravitação social, constituindo o Modelo Gravitacional do Turismo (MGT). São, inicialmente, estudados os já existentes modelos teóricos e estatísticos que visam a explicar o turismo, além das pesquisas já desenvolvidas sobre a aplicação dos modelos gravitacionais ao turismo. Em seguida, as proposições do MGT são desenvolvidas por meio de discussões verbalizadas, da construção de um diagrama e de descrições matemáticas. Por fim, a validade do MGT é testada por um estudo estatístico empírico dos fluxos turísticos domésticos no Brasil. As conclusões do estudo apontam para a validade do modelo, indicando que a dinâmica origem-destino dos fluxos turísticos pode ser explicada com base na interação das forças repulsiva, atrativa e de atrito definidas pelo estudo.; This study intends to understand the origin-destination dynamics of the tourism flows, based on their causal factors. To explain this phenomenum, the paper proposes some adaptations of the social gravitation principles to the tourism activity, leading to the Tourism Gravitational Model (MGT). Initially...

Dissertação apresentada à Escola Superior de Comunicação Social como parte dos requisitos para obtenção de grau de mestre em Publicidade e Marketing.; O turismo revela-se um importante setor de atividade económica, capaz de contribuir para o desenvolvimento e criação de riqueza, assim como para o bem-estar físico e psíquico dos cidadãos. Por outro lado, a publicidade atua como espelho da sociedade contribuindo para a mudança de comportamentos através de padrões e símbolos que apelam a desejos e necessidades. Compreendo a potencialidade persuasiva da publicidade, a necessidade de evasão do consumidor associada ao lazer e à ocupação de tempos livres, bem como o elevado potencial de desenvolvimento económico que a atividade turística comporta, importa estudar a publicidade institucional e a forma como esta se posiciona na mente do turista português. Com a presente investigação de cariz qualitativo, procuramos compreender quais as características dos vídeos de publicidade institucional direcionada à prática de turismo interno e de que forma esta se posiciona na mente do turista português. Este estudo contemplou a análise de conteúdo de vinte e quatro vídeos promocionais referentes às campanhas publicitárias realizadas entre 2005 e 2012...

China is already the largest domestic tourism market in the world. Chinese citizens made as many as 800 million overnight domestic trips in 2005. While travel is not a new concept in China, the disposable income they wield, the range of options becoming available and individual tastes are changing every day. This paper has two main objectives: (1) to detail the characteristics of the domestic Chinese traveler and, to a lesser extent, foreign inbound and Chinese outbound tourists; and (2) to explore the different drivers of tourism development and growth in China. Both sections are targeted at businesspeople and governments thinking about tourism-related business ventures, and at policymakers considering how best to stimulate tourism, consumption and economic gain. The Chinese people are eager to explore China - they will travel at home before going abroad. Tourism is not the exclusive purview of cosmopolitan urbanites; rural Chinese travel too. Chinese domestic tourists want overwhelmingly to visit natural landscapes when they travel. They also want more specialized and less visited destinations.; (cont.) They pay for lodging and spend as much on retail purchases as on lodging or food. Domestic Chinese business is the main driver of business travel in China The major drivers of tourism growth in China are: the rise of the middle class...

This study estimates the contribution of nature-based tourism in Zambia to economic growth and poverty reduction as well as to the sustainability of the management of the wildlife estate. The Zambian Government has identified tourism along with agriculture, mining and manufacturing as the most important sectors for economic development in its various planning documents, including the 2007 Fifth National Development Plan (FNDP). This report is organized into three sections: chapters two and three characterize the tourism industry and the economic impact of nature tourists. Using a variety of sources of information, the two chapters profile the tourism industry in Zambia and analyze the barriers to growth. The chapter four investigates the welfare of communities living in game management area (GMAs) around national parks.

Global investment promotion best practices (GIPB) assess how well national investment promotion intermediaries (IPIs) from 189 countries attract investment. The assessment is carried out by a review of IPI websites and mystery shopper inquiries that mirror the process in which foreign investors decide the location of the next projects. GIPB 2012 assessment results revealed poor performance of a staggering majority of IPIs in providing information and assistance to prospective investors in the tourism sector (investment facilitation) - a core function of IPIs worldwide. It should also be noted that less than half of the IPIs that listed tourism as a priority sector responded to the inquiry, which even then was often with incomplete information. Based on international best practices, this report recommends that IPIs adopt five key steps in order to position their agencies and locations more competitively for new tourism investment: (1) develop more strategic, focused, and relevant approaches to tourism investment promotion; (2) improve overall capacity and skills to deliver effective investment promotion with an emphasis on developing better tourism-specific knowledge in-house...

El trabajo estudia el ciclo de crecimiento de la demanda turística dirigida a la economía española, en el periodo 1990-2011. El objetivo es doble. Primero, analizar el ciclo turístico distinguiendo entre turismo interno y turismo receptor. Segundo, detectar a/simetrías y sincronización entre la actividad turística y la económica. Según los resultados, el turismo no residente ejerce un efecto arrastre sobre la actividad económica. Sin embargo, el turismo residente tiene una capacidad relativamente mayor de generar ganancias en la actividad en la expansión y de moderar las pérdidas en la contracción.; ABSTRACT: In this paper we provide an analysis of the Spanish tourism demand growth cycle, during the period 1990-2011. The aim is twofold. Firstly, analyze tourism growth cycle, distinguishing between domestic tourism and inbound tourism. Secondly, we compare tourism growth cycle and economic growth cycle to detect a/symmetries and synchronization. The results show that nonresident tourism drags economic activity contributing to increase employment and production. However, domestic tourism generates greater activity gains, in expansion phase, while in recession generates minor losses.

The rich cultural heritage of China is an essential touchstone of its collective identity. The country's archaeological sites, historic architecture, expressive arts, cultural landscapes, and ethnic diversity also are treasured around the world. Despite their importance, China's cultural assets are under tremendous pressure due to the country's rapid development, particularly its rapid urbanization. Moreover, rising incomes and mobility have significantly increased domestic tourism, leading to the overdevelopment and deterioration of cultural heritage sites. However, many of China's government officials, conservationists, and community groups have recognized these threats and, over the past several decades, have worked tirelessly to protect their country's cultural heritage. Based on the 12 projects developed under this partnership, this report presents an overview of the project approaches and experiences, takes stock of the challenges, extracts initial lessons learned, and identifies new directions and challenges ahead. The principal audience of the report is national...

Tourism is one of Latin America's fastest growing industries but the impact of tourism on the poor and the effects on lagging regions are under debate. Many studies have evaluated the growth impacts of the tourism sector but few have analyzed the impact of tourism on the economy and poverty at the subnational level in developing countries. As a country marked by a "dual economy," Panama shares with other Latin American countries a fast growing, modern urban sector side by side with impoverished rural and peri-urban populations. Tourism has been growing in Panama and contributes at least 6 percent of gross domestic product. This paper presents the results of a top-down assessment of the impact of tourism spending on growth and poverty at the regional (province) level in Panama using a Social Accounting Matrix model. As revealed by this study, the tourism sector has large multiplier effects on the Panamanian economy and has the potential for significant benefits to the poor. But tourism's poverty benefits are neither automatic nor ubiquitous. They depend on where and how supply chains are structured and on the way tourists spend their money.

The economy of the Palestinian territories, hampered by years of conflict, occupation, and insecurity remains dependent on foreign aid with the public sector remaining the largest employer. However, it is critical that serious efforts are made to look at medium term measures that can reverse current negative trends and put the Palestinian economy on a path to sustainable growth. The Palestinian tourism industry has the necessary infrastructure, facilities and attractions to become a viable and independent destination. However, the industry is not developed fully across the value chain resulting in leakages of tourism revenue. Rural areas did not benefit from the recent growth, and were excluded from the mainstream tourism routes. In 2010, the Palestinian Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities (MOTA) released a national strategy that carried the vision of 'promoting the national image of Palestine as a safe, hospitable, independent destination, rich in religious, cultural, historical and natural resources'. The objectives of the master plan are to increase the number of visitors...

A good investment climate for tourism, underpinned by a sound tax regime, can play a central role in a government's growth and development strategy. Yet in many countries, tax systems for the tourism sector are characterized by exemption schemes and instruments that generate little revenue and burden business. This note focuses on the three main issues facing policymakers dealing with tourism taxation in developing countries: fiscal incentives, sector-specific levies, and value-added tax (VAT). It discusses different policy options to encourage tourism investments while ensuring sustainable revenue collection. A good business environment for tourism is essential to support the industry's central role in many countries' development strategies. Investments in the sector, which has significant growth potential among developing countries, can have important positive spillovers on poverty reduction. Tourism is a complex industry of numerous subsectors. It is challenging to define exactly what constitutes a tourism product and how to tax it; tourism is not a single commodity...

The book provides an evaluation of, and policy advice on key environmental, social, and economic issues concerning the development of nature tourism. Using KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa as a case study, it highlights both the benefits, and trade-offs I promoting, an managing sustainable nature-tourism development, and it assesses how policy can enhance nature tourism's contribution to economic growth, poverty reduction, and conservation. The book's contributors explore three key issues. First, they consider the importance of moving beyond development of a wildlife industry, to the creation of a true nature tourism economy, that supports biodiversity conservation. Second, they explore the role of the private sector in contributing to equitable development, and job creation, while generating conservation finance. Third, they consider alternative pricing, and other market mechanisms that can help make nature tourism more viable, and growth-oriented. Ultimately, the authors argue, economic development, equity, and conservation objectives can be balanced.

In addition to some of the most acclaimed beaches in the world, the Indian ocean islands offer one of the planet's greatest concentrations of biodiversity and stunning landscapes that include active volcanoes, sculpted canyons, and verdant seaside cliffs. Yet, despite its many attributes and accolades, the region is not very well known within the global tourism marketplace. This note is an analysis aimed at assessing opportunities for tourism integration among the four Indian ocean island nations of Comoros, Madagascar, Mauritius, and Seychelles. To inform this regional analysis and recommendations, the four reviews were conducted to provide a basis for understanding each country's tourism sector in terms of its development and current performance, contribution to the economy, and principal challenges. As a basis for analysis of the prospect of regional integration, the current state of tourism in each of the countries is considered within a regional context and recommendations for specific regional tourism integration initiatives are provided as guidance for the way forward. The tourism sector reviews were completed through a combination of desk research and country visits that involved consultations with a range of stakeholders from the public sector...
