According to a report jointly produced by World Tourism Organization, International Trade Centre and Enhanced Integrated Framework, tourism can emerge as a strong contributor for developing economies of least developed countries (LDCs).
The report titled ‘Tourism for Sustainable Development in Least Developed Countries’ revealed that 45 out of 48 diagnostic trade integration studies feature tourism as a key sector for development. Tourism represents seven percent of total exports of goods and services in least developed countries.
The research aims to increase investment and to ensure that tourism creates more jobs where they are most needed and for those who need it the most.
