Analysis of Tourism Strategies and Policies in the FEMIP Countries and Proposals for Sub-regional Tourism Development
- Mar 6, 2008
Tourism has a long history in the FEMIP countries and has become a growth sector in most of them. This is primarily due to the region’s natural and cultural resources, a desirable climate, and a location close to key markets. These attributes give FEMIP countries an outstanding potential for further tourism development; creating income throughout the region and distributing it across socio-economic levels. This, on top of its current economic importance to most FEMIP countries, gives tourism the capacity to influence economic development to a greater extent than any other industry.
