Tourism in the Regional Development Perspective: Romanian Background
AbstractEfficiency is generally defined as the extent to which resources or effort is employed in order to achieve a certain purpose or objective. As per an economic perspective, this term may also mean a minimum quantity of supplies which can generate a maximum result. But can we talk about efficiency and economic growth from the tourism perspective? This study aims to present tourism in the context of regional development policies as a main factor of reducing economic difference between territories and consequently generating growth. We aim to answer some questions, like it is tourism a priority for Romania's regional development and how tourism development are included in regional development policies and strategies. Also, we try to find out how to explain sluggishness Romanian tourism to other countries in the region in terms of regional development strategies and policies. This work is part of a larger study in which we will continue with interviews with policy makers, administration of a questionnaire online contracting organizations, presentation of descriptive case studies.
