The World Travel & Tourism Council is renowned for the depth and breadth of its research. For more than 25 years we have spearheaded the global analysis of the economic importance of Travel & Tourism, and are the only global organisation that studies and publishes research on the sector’s direct, indirect, and induced impact at a national, regional and global level on jobs, GDP, and 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.
