Travel and tourism's total contribution to GDP in France 2012-2028

The travel and tourism industry contributed to the French Gross Domestic Product (GDP) in total with approximately 204.3 billion euros in 2017. The source predicted that this contribution will increase in the coming ten years, reaching an expected total of around 248.1 billion euros in 2028. In 2017, France welcomed almost 87 million international tourists, making it the most visited country in the world in that year.

France was the most attractive country for tourists in 2017

Most of those visitors came from the other side of the Channel: France welcomed in that same year a total of 12.7 million tourists from the United Kingdom. Further 11.8 million tourists from Germany also visited France. Nonetheless, non-European residents seem to have contributed more to the French tourism revenues than other European tourists, as they spent on average 9.4 nights in France in 2014 .

International tourists spend less in Paris

During the year 2017 alone, international visitors spent a total of 13.05 billion U.S. dollars in Paris, representing a decrease of approximately six billion U.S. dollars in comparison to a peak in 2013, whilst the opposite trend is observed for the number of international tourists. In spite of decline of tourist spending, Paris was the 7th leading city in international visitor spending in the world in 2017 .
