Travel and tourism - additional information

In 2015, the best ranked country in the Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index was Spain with a score of 5.31 out of seven. The index was part of "The Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2015: Growth through Shocks." The report assessed worldwide economies on their travel and tourism development efforts and the impact of this on job creation.

Travel and tourism’s total contribution to global GDP reached 7.58 trillion U.S. dollars in 2014 - 3.85 trillion of this figure came from leisure spending. In that year, there were 973.8 million international tourist arrivals worldwide, over half of these visiting Europe. This number had increased by around 250 million since 2005 and was forecasted to almost double to 1.81 billion by 2030.

The United States ranked fourth out of 141 on the 2014 Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index with a score of 5.12 out of seven. Travel and tourism’s total contribution to GDP in the U.S. was 1.4 trillion U.S. dollars and, of its direct contribution, just under 80 percent came from domestic tourists. In the same year, the industry directly created 5.3 million jobs in the U.S.
