...I. Introduction Tourism provides a major economic development opportunity for many countries and a means of improving the livelihoods of its residents. Both the public and private sectors involved in tourism depend on planning to achieve sustainable tourism development that respects the local community, creates appropriate employment, maintains the natural environment, and delivers a quality visitor experience. However, many tourism destinations have pursued development without proper planning and without considering the many impacts such development will bring to the community. This session will discuss tourism planning approaches to achieve the goals and objectives of tourism development for a destination. For the purposes of discussion, a tourism destination can mean an entire country, a region, an island, a resort area, or a single project. The tourism plan is generally a formal document to guide both public sector and private sector development activities. Destination planning includes many different forms of planning such as economicdevelopment planning, land use planning, infrastructure planning ,and social services planning and involves many groups with different perspectives including governments, private investors and developers, and local communities.

...sector on June 8, 1948 in Mumbai (Bombay)-London air route. For many years since its inception the Indian Aviation Industry was plagued by inappropriate regulatory and operational procedures resulting in either excessive or no competition. Nationalization of Indian Airlines (IA) in 1953 brought the domestic civil aviation sector under the purview of Indian Government. Government's intervention in this sector was meant for removing the operational limitations arising out of excess competition. Air transportation in India now comes under the direct control of the Department of Civil Aviation, a part of the Ministry of Civil Aviation and Tourism of Government of India. Aviation by its very nature constitutes the elitist part of our country's infrastructure. This sector has substantial contribution towards the development of country's trade and tourism, providing easier access to the areas full of natural beauty. It therefore acts as a stimulus for country's growth and economic prosperity. AVIATION SECTOR IN INDIA The aviation sector in India has registered an estimated increase in domestic passenger sector by 50% per annum in the recent years, while the growth in international passenger section is estimated as 25%. Experts foresee future growth in international cargo by 12%. As per the prediction of the Ministry of Civil Aviation, India in the coming decade will require 1,500 to 2,000 passenger aircrafts out of which 135 planes have already been added.

...are about to get out, and summer vacations will be starting. The peak season for U.S. tourism will be here before we know it with record travelers in some destinations. International destinations are seeing records in their seasons as we speak. Tourism is a nonstop global industry and for this project I took a look at some of the recent trends for the market and will also analyze the some common themes amongst them. The first major thing that most Americans are following very closely is the current situation with North Korea. With the political uncertainty and military threats it makes one question any potential visits to the countries around North Korea. The other countries are aware of the devastating effects that North Korea could have on their tourism revenue and have issued statements that it is still safe to visit. Seoul, South Korea believes that North Korea is doing this on purpose to harm their local economy and is doing everything in their power to convince the world that day to day life in Seoul is the same (Cha). Even countries who are typically allies with North Korea are considering shutting down travel until the North Korea has stabilized. China brings more tourists to North Korea than nearly any other country yet they are not willing to take any risks. The tourism board in Dandong, China has shut down the border which will likely end up severely hurting North Korea’s tourism. This was its exact intention for South Korea and is now backfiring and may be a......

...Economic impacts of Tourism Page # 1 Economic Impacts of Tourism Daniel J. Stynes Businesses and public organizations are increasingly interested in the economic impacts of tourism at national, state, and local levels. One regularly hears claims that tourism supports X jobs in an area or that a festival or special event generated Y million dollars in sales or income in a community. “Multiplier effects” are often cited to capture secondary effects of tourism spending and show the wide range of sectors in a community that may benefit from tourism. Tourism’s economic benefits are touted by the industry for a variety of reasons. Claims of tourism’s economic significance give the industry greater respect among the business community, public officials, and the public in general. This often translates into decisions or public policies that are favorable to tourism. Community support is important for tourism, as it is an activity that affects the entire community. Tourism businesses depend extensively on each other as well as on other businesses, government and residents of the local community. Economic benefits and costs of tourism reach virtually everyone in the region in one way or another. Economic impact analyses provide tangible estimates of these economic interdependencies and a better understanding of the role and importance of tourism in a region’s economy. Tourism activity also involves economic costs, including the direct costs incurred by tourism......

...Analysis ‘Going Green’ has evolved past the voluntary stages where companies could pick and choose a few practices to earn an innovative reputation from their consumers. Utilizing green practices has now become a competitive advantage and being a leader in green development means applying green practices before it becomes a regulation. Organizations that stay ahead of the emerging sustainability curve have the potential to gain a competitive advantage as well as gain recognition for their green efforts within the hospitality industry, (Graci & Kuehnel, 2010). In today’s rapidly growing society, consumers have more power than ever before due to the amount of choices presented to them on a daily basis. Therefore, when it comes to tourism guests are now able to consider multiple travel destinations that offer a variety of combinations with just a click of a button. Consumers have become acquainted with having things their way, and traveling has become very personalized. Thus, drawing travelers through their emotions is becoming increasingly important, as well as offering benefits that appeal to their lifestyles, (Rosso, 2006). An increasing amount of travelers have become concerned about their environmental impact, and have started trying to reduce their carbon footprint in society. This lifestyle has been included during their vacations, and tourists are now looking for organizations that share their common values about protecting the environment. According to Lee et......

It is the largest and fastest growing industry in the world. Tourism is both Jamaica’s fastest growing industry and the largest foreign exchange earner. The country’s natural resources such as its golden sunshine, beaches, flora and fauna and rivers, are the primary selling points for tourists. Tourism and the environment have a very complex and interdependent relationship as it is the quality of the environment that will determine the success of the tourism industry since it is our main attraction. Agencies responsible for Jamaica’s Tourism industry include Jamaica Tourist Board (JTB) and the Tourism Product Development Company (TPDCo). The Jamaica Tourist Board is charged with a mission of marketing the tourism product so that Jamaica remains the premier Caribbean tourism destination.

Italy The boot-shaped county in the south of Europe has had the misfortune of being included in this group, and is sometimes interchangeable with Ireland, depending on who is using the term. Because of Italy's rich history, famous food and romantic nature, it is one of the most visited countries in the world. About two-thirds of the 60 million residents work in the service sector, which may explain part of its high unemployment. Tourism, a driving force in this country, has been negatively affected since the world economy stumbled in 2008. Italy's economy is considered above average in development, driven by an educated, efficient, hard working labor force. Italy boasts a very high standard of living, but it has financed these standards by being one of Europe's biggest offenders of taking on debt. The country has reached an above average GDP per capita, with a national debt in excess of 100% of GDP. Ireland Also called the Emerald Isle, Ireland is a famous tourist destination due to its rich history, unique climate and terrain. Ireland has a population of around 4.5 million, and a small economy, which places it close to Portugal in its ranking in the European......
