Global Analysis from the European Perspective. Preparing for the world of tomorrow

How devastating is the collapse of tourism for France?


The World Travel & Tourism Council regards commodities such as accomodation, transportation, entertainment, as well as food and beverage services or cultural services as a direct contribution to GDP. But tourism has also an indirect impact on the economy, like investment spending. To make the picture complete, also the expenditure of direct and indirect employees of the tourism industry, or the so called induced contribution, ought to be added. As a result, tourism altogether contributes almost 9% to France’s GDP and up to 10% to France’s employment. But still, it is less than in Greece, Portugal or Spain.
