Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2017 in the subject Tourism, Griffith University (Griffith Institute of Tourism), language: English, abstract: Conventional literature has proven that Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) modelling is the best applied tool addressing and analysing tourism related issues in an economy. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to develop a Computable General Equilibrium Model for an economy (hereafter referred to as CGE-Tourism) for tourism impact analysis. The core model of CGE-Tourism closely follows the well-known Australian ORANI model and the extension of tourism to the core model closely follows the recent work of Australian tourism modellers. This paper contains six sections. The second section provides a brief summary of economic impact analysis of tourism. Section three outlines the overview of the theoretical structure and implementation of the CGE-Tourism model. The system of equations of the core model of CGE-Tourism is presented in section four. Section five describes the new extension of tourism modelling to the core model.Measuring the contribution of tourism to a national economy has always been a frustrating exercise. Tourism does not have specific products. It represents the sum of expenditure by travellers for wide range of products. It is not possible to identify tourism as a single "industry" in the national accounts, its value to the economy is not readily revealed. As a result of the absence of tourism in off...

The study addresses Algeria in general and explains what regional development should be made possible. Concepts of management are explained, leading to a new path of tourism development that should be taken in Algeria. Algeria is a very rich country in terms of tourism, but it has little knowledge about using its resources. Algeria's coastal and saharan desert have excellent tourism potential. By making long-term plans, they can become an indispensable destination for sustainable tourism. Looking at the old history of Algeria, it is clear that this is a country that has hosted many civilizations. It is also the largest country of African in terms of surface area, and it takes a lot of time to be safe because of its size. In the neighboring countries Morocco and Tunisia, tourism is already growing greatly. However, there are few in Algeria to work in the name of tourism. In this thesis, it is explained how management should be handled in order to increase tourism investments.Finally, in a survey study conducted in Algiers city, the opinion of local inhabitants on tourism development of Algeria is also made clear.

Diploma Thesis from the year 2001 in the subject Tourism, grade: 1.3, Heilbronn University, language: English, abstract: Often referred to as the 'smokeless industry', tourism has become one of the fastest growing, most dynamic sectors of economic growth in the world. Tourism is a key sector in many developing countries, which show potential. However, over-reliance on tourism, especially mass tourism carries significant risks to tourism-dependent economies. As a result, many developing countries have since espoused the principle of sustainability in shaping their tourism policies. However, few of them have been able to convert this into concrete action owing to the short-term economic interests to which, all too often, priority is given, to the detriment of protecting social and environmental assets.The purpose of this paper is to create and formulate clear, firm and equitable guidelines in a tourism policy concept that is set in the context of sustainable development and aims further to raise the competitive position of a destination. Theory will be demonstrated in practical terms in the case of the Caribbean tourism destination, the Dominican Republic.

Seminar paper from the year 2012 in the subject Tourism, Griffith University, course: PhD, language: English, abstract: After the end of nearly three decades of civil war in 2009, Sri Lanka is experiencing a tourism boom with a record level of international tourist arrivals. The Sri Lankan government has now identified tourism as a main component in its post-war development strategy. Despite this new policy enthusiasm there is dearth of research on tourism in Sri Lanka. The purpose of this study, therefore, is to contribute to the literature on tourism in Sri Lanka in a number of ways. First, it provides a systematic historical narrative on Sri Lankan tourism and explains how Sri Lanka missed opportunities in the past. Second, it develops a Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) model focusing on tourism and constructs a database with an emphasis on tourism. Third, it examines the economy-wide effects of the post-war tourism boom in Sri Lanka.

This study assesses "pro-poor" tourism initiatives in Alexandra Township since 1994, with particular focus on the arts and crafts at St Michael's Church and SA Jewel. It will investigate whether projects similar to bead craft, initiated at the same time with the same objectives have benefited the residents of Alexandra. Finally, the study will consider if tourism initiatives being implemented in Alexandra conform to 'sustainable development' objectives. The research reviews the literature on Tourism Development domestically and Local Economic Development. Furthermore the report extends to literature reviews specifically in Sustainable Tourism and Pro-Poor Tourism, its definitions and its examples in the tourism industry. It examines the various arguments for tourism development and alleviating poverty through these initiatives.

Tourism planning in Bosnia and Herzegovina is an original and innovative book which resulted from 11 months long research. It examines the theoretical dimension of tourism planning approaches emphasizing the importance of two important dimensions, sustainability and community involvement. The author sets out to investigate institutions responsible for tourism development and to test possibility of application of "Third Way" model of tourism planning in the country. The findings show that the concept of tourism planning is well understood but remained a theoretical percept rather than an implementable practice. Furthermore, the present situation can be attributed to the political complexity of the economies in transitions and reluctance of the officials to commit themselves to a planning process which require responsibilities and sacrifices. The book gives chance to readers to draw clear picture of tourism potentials and problems in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The book is aimed to all those interested in tourism planning worldwide and especially tourism planning authorities in B&H with hope to be of great help in their future tourism planning practices and approaches

Scientific Study from the year 2017 in the subject Tourism, University of Kelaniya, course: Economic Modelling, language: English, abstract: Measuring the contribution of tourism to a national economy has always been a frustrating exercise. Tourism does not have specific products. It represents the sum of expenditure by travellers for wide range of products. It is not possible to identify tourism as a single "industry" in the national accounts, its value to the economy is not readily revealed. As a result of the absence of tourism in official economic statistics, there is often an on-going battle to establish tourism credibility as an economic activity and generator of income in the economy. As a result, a significant volume of tourism research over the past few decades have focussed on the development and use of a variety of economic techniques aimed at quantifying the effects of tourism on an economy. In conventional literature has proven that Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) modelling is the best applied tool addressing and analysing tourism related issues in an economy.

Mountains continue to be one of the core features of adventure tourism. Mountains cover one-fifth of the earth's land surface and continue to market themselves, in a way, as destinations with a clean environment, a variety of flora and fauna, and beautiful nature. The case study location chosen for this research was Azerbaijan, a country near the Great Caucasus Range and Caspian Sea. Azerbaijan is a country primarily covered by mountains that have a high potential for adventure tourism.

Stimulated by an in-creased interest in health and fitness as well as the need to escape from work-related stress, "spa-going" is now one of the most sophisticated and exciting ways of making holidays in the 21st century.Responding to the increasing demand for wellness, the tourism industry had to adapt its holi-day offers and hotel facilities by creating spa or wellness centres within the hotels and resorts - spa or wellness centres which opened in the cities recently are not entering the field of well-ness tourism and therefore are not recognized in this report.In this report the identification of wellness tourism, its development and its trends are the matter of interest.

Seminar paper from the year 2014 in the subject Politics - International Politics - Topic: Globalization, Political Economics, grade: 1,0, University of Applied Sciences Fulda (Sozial-und Kulturwissenschaften), course: Globalization, language: English, abstract: The purpose of this paper is to describe the favela tourism in Rio de Janeiro as a globalized phenomenon in the context of ethic debates. Is favela tourism good or bad? Is it ethical to gaze at poor people and to take pictures of their houses? Is poverty tourism exploitation? Do slum tours profit of the tour? Is the favela tourism in the favor of the community? In the case of Rio: does the favela tourism help to integrate the favelas into the former city?Poverty tourism is a complex and globalized phenomenon. The location Rio de Janeiro was chosen because of the peculiarity of its topography and history and because of a personal interest by the author. Furthermore, Rio's favelas have always been the focus of a more alternative type of tourism and due to the violence they have never been part of the traditional tourism. But since the movie Cidade de Deus (2002) the favelas as a touristic destination gained importance.

The study investigated the impact of Zimbabwe's economic crises on tourism viability from 2000-2010. Data were collected through questionnaires, in depth interviews and document analysis and analysed using the Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 13. The study revealed that tourism was negatively affected by the economic crisis. It is concluded that the economic crisis impacted on tourism viability as evidenced by the low volumes of tourists. Recommendations drawn from this research are that there is need by government to develop tourism - related sectors that include transport, infrastructure development and information communication technology. The government should make sure that airports are refurbished to attract more tourists. The need for a conducive investment climate is important for the tourism sector as it is for all other sectors of the economy.

Master's Thesis from the year 2007 in the subject Tourism, grade: 2,2, University of Applied Sciences Eberswalde, 200 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: Tourism has been acknowledged by practitioners and governments to be a tool for economic development, not exclusively but mainly, of less developed countries with few other competitive sectors and, therefore, for boosting their domestic economy as well as reducing the endemic poverty in Africa.This paradigm is difficult to apply when the tourism industry is not viable in a country and the great majority of tourism establishments have insufficient numbers of clients to make profit. In this respect, some findings indicate that, tourism and local small-scale agriculture (World Bank, 2006b) have been widely neglected by the Government of Sierra Leone, all efforts having been directed onto the development of the mining sector. In fact, while production and marketing constraints can be solved as stated in the wider agriculture literature, due to the nature of Sierra Leone as a "fragile state", findings suggest that the lack of commitment and attitude of the Government to more responsible tourism forms or approaches will hamper any attempt to foster strategic alliances between the poor agriculture sector and tourism industry or other lucrative market-segments. Although the recent tourism development in Sierra Leone addresses the important issue of preserving the few available tourist attractions, a...

Research Paper (undergraduate) from the year 2017 in the subject Tourism, , language: English, abstract: Economic impact refers to the changes in the economic contribution resulting from specific events or activities that comprise 'shocks' to the tourism system. Tourism Satellite Accounts (TSA) are a statistical tool. They are used to report how much the tourism sector has contributed to an economy and how important the tourism sector is compared to other sectors in the economy. Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) tourism model can provide more realistic analytical recommendations to policy makers. More specifically, the model can be used to measure economy-wide yield for tourism destinations. The paper first outlines the nature and importance of TSAs as a measure of the economic contribution of tourism to an economy. TSAs based estimates of the direct contribution of tourism in Australia are provided to illustrate the use of this tool. The paper then discusses the importance of developing TSAs at the regional level and the approaches that can be employed (bottom up, top down, mixed), as well as the limitations of TSAs as a policy instrument. It then discusses CGE modelling as a tool of economic impact analysis providing CGE based estimates of the economic impacts of increased inbound tourism to Queensland to illustrate the use of this technique. The analysis is expected to enhance stakeholder understanding the separate roles that TSAs and CGE modelling can play in d...

Mediators employ aspects of culture, authenticity and branding as a means to portray and explain the destinations. This book examines if three specific mediators recentre culture into the tourism products, they portray. These separate communicators are analyzed rhetorically, and Halliday's notion of register is used to establish which language functions the mediators have applied in their tourism communications. Derived from that, the book provides an indicator of the communicational means applied in the tourism industry. The book should in particular be valuable to professionals in Communications and Marketing fields.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2016 in the subject Tourism, grade: 2.1, University of Plymouth (Cornwall College Newquay (in partnership with UoP)), course: Marine Sports Science (BSc Hons), language: English, abstract: The tourism industry has significant repercussions in regards to economic value to destinations worldwide but is susceptible to external shocks such as terrorism as tourist numbers follow terroristic activity causing economic damage to destinations beyond managerial control. Surf tourism is of growing economic, social and environmental value to destinations in Indonesia due to the region's abundance of high quality waves and resulting attractiveness to surfers however, it is a region frequented by terrorist activity. The aim of this paper is to investigate the effect of terrorism on commercial surf tourism as a sub segment of the global tourism industry. Data was obtained using a survey consisting of 5 closed ended questions assessing IAO variables of traveling surfers regarding the perception of terrorism as a risk influencing destination choice and travel plans. 42 usable responses were collected over a three-month period from January 7th to March 28th 2016. Results of the statistical analysis suggest that surfers demonstrate a different behaviour in comparison to other tourists and have a low perception of terrorism as a risk influencing destination choice. In fact, from the data and statistical analysis it appears that the significant reliance on the qu...

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2010 in the subject Tourism, grade: 2,0, University of Cooperative Education Ravensburg, language: English, abstract: Tourism is the most superficial way of an intercultural encounter1 and one of the biggest industrialsectors in the world. "The WTTC (World Travel and Tourism Council) estimates thatover 230 million jobs in world are supported by the tourism industry, which equates to 8.3 percent of total global employment, or one in every 12 jobs."2 Furthermore, the latest statisticsfrom 2008 show that tourism has not reached its peak yet. Over 80 countries earned morethan € 642 billion through international tourism in 2008, while in 1990 it had only been € 207billion.3 Another statistic representing and pointing up the booming tendency is the one showingthe international tourist arrivals: while there had only been 25 million arrivals in 1950, thenumber constantly rose to 922 million in 2008 and by 2020 1.6 billion international touristarrivals are expected.4 With so many tourists spending time abroad every year it is a logicalconsequence that different culture groups meet. From time to time, people may spend twoweeks in Turkey, Dubai, Cancun or on Bali. This unfortunately might happen without thepeople even getting the local culture rudimentarily. But if they try to get to know the local culture,difficulties may occur. It is not only the language which is different and causes troublesand misunderstandings in communication; attitudes and t...

Recently, Meetings, Incentives, Conventions and Exhibitions (MICE) tourism development is one of the tourism diversifying strategy of Macau Government Tourism Office (MGTO). In October 2009, the implementation of Mainland China and Macau Closer Economic Partnership Arrangement (CEPA) limited the restriction of trading in MICE services between the two places. Taking this great opportunity, the development of MICE tourism in Macau benefits from injection of foreign investments and growing awareness on the potential of MICE industry. However, previous researchers commented that the strong gaming image of Macau can be a disadvantage and the effectiveness of MGTO still needs to be improved. Other than the tourism aspects, regional collaboration with nearby Chinese provinces is crucial in building and maintaining long-term relationships. To review on the current state of MICE tourism development, the opinions of 36 experts from different sectors were collected to analyze the strengths and weaknesses of Macau. The results reveal that most of the respondents agree on the viewpoints of the criteria and aspects suggested by previous authors are applicable in Macau

The goal of this book is to deal, in a provocative way, with a number of key issues involvingthe increased participation of the private sector within cultural tourism. My goal is notto write a complete overview of the field. Instead, this short book deals with a fairly circumscribedset of issues involving contemporary changes within cultural tourism. Sincemodern business largely focuses on serving customers, a major focus of this book concernsmarketing thought and its implications in regard to cultural tourism. In large measure, thisbook seeks to help host communities and their advocates to become familiar with andcomfortable within a private sector context as well as being able to interact in such anenvironment.The book starts with a two-chapter introduction that focuses upon the distinctive role of cultural tourism. As emphasized inchapter 1, a dilemma arises because cultural tourism must simultaneously serve multiple stakeholders and do so in equitableways. This is much more complex than the more typical task of concentrating upon the needs, wants, and desires of customers.These ideas are refined in chapter 2 where the discussion centers primarily upon the importance of serving hostcommunities, in addition to customers. Certainly, catering to customers continues to be an issue, but it should be envisionedas an ad hoc method of serving the host community.

Bachelor Thesis from the year 2008 in the subject Tourism, grade: 1,8, International University of Applied Sciences Bad Honnef - Bonn, language: English, abstract: As research around the impacts of Mega Sport Events on host cities and regions reached is peaking in the aftermath of the FIFA World Cup 2006, the UEFA European Football Championship 2008 and the Beijing Summer Games 2008 the topic of cooperation and networking has been widely neglected in regard to MSEs. With the focus on the tourism industry of hosting regions, this work tries to start to change this, as an exploratory approach towards finding out more about the interrelationship of those two topics in tourism. As both, MSEs and cooperation are gaining more and more interest within tourism research this should also be seen as an approach to combine both to motivate further research.Methodologically this is realized by conducting expert interview with five industry experts with valuable experience in preparing, hosting and also benefiting from a Mega Sport Event. The expert interview, as the primary research part of this work is based on the cooperation concept of Axelrod's game theory. This basis was used to design, conduct and analyze the primary research part of this thesis. Essentially, the thesis should be interpreted as a scientific approach to present the combination of the topics of Mega Sport Events and cooperation in tourism.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2011 in the subject Tourism, grade: A, The University of Liverpool, language: English, abstract: Tourism industry in the United Kingdom is a significant industry that contributes heavily to the economy of the United Kingdom in terms of revenue and employment opportunities. The industry is in fact the second largest foreign exchange earner in the United Kingdom.

Research Paper (postgraduate) from the year 2017 in the subject Tourism, Griffith University (Griffith Institute of Tourism), language: English, abstract: Conventional literature has proven that Computable General Equilibrium (CGE) modelling is the best applied tool addressing and analysing tourism related issues in an economy. Therefore, the aim of this paper is to develop a Computable General Equilibrium Model for an economy (hereafter referred to as CGE-Tourism) for tourism impact analysis. The core model of CGE-Tourism closely follows the well-known Australian ORANI model and the extension of tourism to the core model closely follows the recent work of Australian tourism modellers. This paper contains six sections. The second section provides a brief summary of economic impact analysis of tourism. Section three outlines the overview of the theoretical structure and implementation of the CGE-Tourism model. The system of equations of the core model of CGE-Tourism is presented in section four. Section five describes the new extension of tourism modelling to the core model.Measuring the contribution of tourism to a national economy has always been a frustrating exercise. Tourism does not have specific products. It represents the sum of expenditure by travellers for wide range of products. It is not possible to identify tourism as a single "industry" in the national accounts, its value to the economy is not readily revealed. As a result of the absence of tourism in off...
