Analyst Review

Asia-Pacific has enjoyed exceptional performance in international tourism in the last few years with above 80% of travelers being intraregional. Outbound demand is led by China, the world’s leading source market and top spender since 2012. Asia-Pacific’s dynamic economies have continued to nurture the region both as an outbound and inbound regional source market in the context of global tourism. Rapid economic growth in a region coupled with market openness in addition to rise in air connectivity and travel facilitation augment tourism in the Asia-Pacific region, both to/from other regions (interregional) and within the region (intraregional).

Identifying white spaces for further development and facilitation of tourism requires consortium to address social issues and shift in consumer preferences. Addressing the regional trends and adapting business accordingly requires colossal level of collaboration and agreement across different complex business and technology.

While majority of investment continues to foster toward tourism infrastructure in the form of airports, hotels, and attraction spots, the issue of human capital in tourism is anticipated to become more critical in the upcoming future sector. As a result, greater strides must be made aligning attention toward education and training in the tourism sector
