WTTC is renowned for the depth and breadth of its research. For the last 20 years we have spearheaded the global analysis of the economic importance of Travel & Tourism - its direct, indirect and induced impact globally, regionally and nationally on jobs, GDP, trade and investment. Our research programme, in partnership with Oxford Economics, forms the backbone of our mission and is unrivalled in the sector.
As well as the annual economic impact research, WTTC undertakes a range of other research projects focused on issues impacting the Travel & Tourism sector, related to the three strategic priorities of Freedom to Travel, Policies for Growth, and Tourism for Tomorrow. These reports look at various policy issues and developments, analysing their connections to and impact on Travel & Tourism.
