For decades, tourism has experienced continued growth and deep diversification, becoming one of the most influential economic sectors on the planet. It is an extraordinarily dynamic and changing activity.

Tourism has an increasingly significant role in international trade, having exceeded $ 1.5 trillion in operations attributable only to international tourism in 2015. Currently, tourism turnover equals or even exceeds that of oil exports, food products or automobiles.

Its overall impact is particularly significant, contributing today to 9.8% of world GDP. A context in which the tourism industry has contributed with a total of 284 million direct jobs in 2015.

These figures speak for themselves of the enormous impact of tourism on development policies at local, regional and global levels.

Under these circumstances the tourism industry itself is called in the coming years to become one of the fundamental engines and priority field of application of the 17 United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).

Consistent with the Sustainable Development Goals, one of the facets that will mark the future of the industry’s commitment will be to increase the capacities of bringing benefits to communities and local sustainable development within the framework of a fair economy.
