Where’s the world’s future booming tourism economy?

WTTC Summit 2011: Montenegro is set to be the next big destination

Montenegro will be the fastest growing travel and tourism economy in the world over the next 10 years according to the sector’s contribution to GDP and employment, says to the latest economic impact research from the World Travel & Tourism Council and Oxford Economics. The findings were released during a press conference at the 11th Global Travel & Tourism Summit in Las Vegas. The forecast also ranks Montenegro as the fastest growing destination worldwide for travel and tourism investment growth, and it places Montenegro in second place, behind Brazil, for visitor export growth.
“Our forecasts reflect the huge achievements made by the government and Ministry of Tourism over the past 10 years,” commented David Scowsill, the WTTC’s CEO and president. “Significant progress has been made at putting into place a solid policy framework for sustainable tourism development and expansion into new niche markets.”
