Tourism is considered one of the main drivers for social and economic development.  It is also a key player in global trade as well as main source of income for many developing nations.  Growth in tourism is linked to diversification and therefore also stimulates competition at the destinations generating further economic activities and many associated sectors like hotels, food and communications.  Modern day tourism remains a catalyst for economic expansion, comprehensive development and guarantor for environmental protection.
