India occupies the 40th placeAccording to WEF, Spain, France and Germany are the most tourism friendly economies. WEF has said that India has jumped 12 places to the 40th rank globally in travel and tourism competitiveness. Although India improved the most among Asian countries, it lagged behind other peers like Japan and China which ranked at 4th and 13th place, respectively. Spain ranked top in the list.

WEF said in its Global Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report 2017 said, “India continues to enrich its cultural resources, protecting more cultural sites and intangible expressions through UNESCO World Heritage lists, and via a greater digital presence.”

Factors which helped India climb up the ladder include international openness through strong policies like visa on arrival and e-visas and improvements in ground transport infrastructure, which benefited travel and tourism sector of the country.

Over the past 15 years, India has seen persistent growth in international arrivals, reaching 8 million visitors in 2015. India’s diverse cultural and natural resources and price competitiveness advantage were the main factors behind attracting international tourists.

WEF said that the Indian travel and tourism sector presents significant opportunities that are yet to be reaped. Traditionally strong travel and tourism destinations like Japan, the UK, the US, Australia, Italy, Canada and Switzerland also made it to the top 10 list.
