Economic Effect of Tourism in Bangladesh
« on: November 10, 2015, 05:02:01 PM »
There is variety of economic impact of tourism. Tourism activities change in sales, income and employment in a region. These effects are distinguished in direct, indirect and induced. The total economic impact is the sum of all direct, indirect and induced effect. Effects that are caused from immediate effect of changes in tourist expenditure are called direct effect. There is a backward linkage of some of the industries with the hotels. These industries supply some of the products or services to the hotels. Due to the increased number of tourist supply of these product or services is required in massive volume which is called indirect effect. For example the indirect effects of tourism concern all sectors of the economy, especially agri-food industries and all tourism-related services such as air transport. Induced effects are the changes in economic activities resulting from household spending of income earned directly or indirectly as a result from tourism spending

Tourism can bring many economic, social and environmental benefits, particularly in rural areas and developing countries, yet mass tourism is also associated with negative effects. Tourism can only be sustainable if it is carefully managed so that probable negative effects on the host community and the environment are not permitted to outweigh the financial benefits.

There are economic, socio-cultural and environmental key benefits of tourism.

i) Economic benefit: Tourism can provide direct jobs to the community, such as tour guides and hotel housekeeping. Indirect employment is generated through other industries like agriculture, food production and retail. Infrastructure development and visitors’ expenditure generates income for the local community and can lead to the alleviation of poverty.

ii) Social benefit: In addition to the revenue, tourism can bring about a real sense of pride and identity to communities. It allows them to look at their history, and community identity. This helps the local residents to maintain their tradition and culture.

iii) Environmental benefit: Tourism provides financial support for the conservation of ecosystems and natural resource management, making the destination more authentic and desirable to visitors.

Economic impacts of tourism can be measured by knowing tourism contribution in the following sectors:
1. Tourism contribution to the GDP of that country
2. Tourism contribution to employment and
3. Visitors export to the country.
