The assessment is accomplished by examining the nature of tourism development and by identifying the problems of the tourism industry that exist in Southeast Asia. This paper also explores strategies required to develop tourism collectively in order to achieve gains through establishing favorable environment and mobilizing endowed strategic resources. The assessment suggests the need to give attention on formulating transparent objectives.
