Switzerland in top ten list of Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index 2015

Published on : Monday, June 15, 2015

SwitzerlandAccording to the Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index 2015, Switzerland stands at 6th position performing well across most of the T&T Competitiveness dimensions.

 

 

The report reveals Switzerland has world-class infrastructure, ranking 4th and 5th respectively in ground infrastructure and tourist services infrastructure, and an extremely conducive business environment (5th), with the top place on the Human Resources and Labour Market pillar.

 

 

Switzerland makes the most of its favorable geographical position and beautiful mountainous landscapes (ranking 21st on Natural Resources) by enforcing some of the most stringent environmental regulations (2nd) and developing its industry with attention to environmental sustainability (1st). Switzerland’s weaknesses include a restrictive visa policy and low price competitiveness, which could be improved by expanding its offer of leisure and entertainment activities to complement the traditional focus on natural tourism.

 

 

First compiled in 2007, the Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index (TTCI) measures “the set of factors and policies that enable the sustainable development of the Travel & Tourism sector, which in turn, contributes to the development and competitiveness of a country”.

 

 

The index has been developed in the context of the World Economic Forum’s Industry Partnership Programme for Aviation & Travel.
