Tourism and Economic Development in Africa

Geoff Riley

26th November 2015

In this excellent A2 economics essay, Ben Stheeman analyses and evaluates the contribution that tourism can and might make to growth and development in Sub Saharan Africa. The global tourism sector represents 9.1% of global GDP, outputting over $6tn, and employs 258mn people, equal to 8.8% of the global workforce. Annual tourist arrivals to Sub-Saharan Africa have grown from just 6.4mn visitors in 1990 to 30.7mn in 2010.
