Digitizing Portuguese tourism might generate 50,000 additional jobs

Published on : Tuesday, December 3, 2019

The biggest bet on digitizing the Portuguese tourism industry might generate 50,000 additional jobs in Portugal in the coming years.

 

A study shows that “there is potential for tourism revenue growth” and “it is possible to generate 50,000 more jobs” with digitalization, said Jose Maria Judice, Google’s industry manager for tourism in Portugal.

 

The Oxford Economics study said, “Improvements in digital connectivity since 2012 in Portugal have generated nearly 50,000 jobs in tourism, a significant proportion of the 250,000 total jobs created by tourism between 2012 and 2018. There are opportunities today to create 50,000 new jobs in Portugal in the coming years.”
