The tourism & travel sector includes everything related to leisure travel and vacations. Today, the tourism industry is one of the largest in the world with estimated annual contributions of almost seven trillion U.S. dollars worldwide.
According to statisca .com, The global Travel & Tourism sector's contribution to the global economy could reach $8.6 trillion this year reads the new research from the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC). The sector’s contribution to the global economy could reach $8.6 trillion, just 6.4% down on pre-pandemic levels.
WTTC’s research also shows that the sector’s contribution to global employment could reach more than 330 million, just 1% below pre-pandemic levels and up 21.5% in 2020 representing a massive 58m more jobs. Carnival
