    Abstract

    Este documento ofrece una visión acerca del estado del sector turismo en México y promueve una reflexión con respecto a la forma de optimizar su contribución al desarrollo sostenible. Se destaca que el turismo puede constituir una alternativa en regiones con problemas estructurales que ven amenazados sus sectores productivos tradicionales por los efectos de la competencia exterior. México ha sabido aprovechar el gran dinamismo del turismo internacional en las últimas décadas para situarse en octavo lugar en el ranking de destinos turísticos a nivel internacional. Sin embargo, se detecta cierta desaceleración del sector, tanto en relación con la actividad económica nacional como respecto del mercado internacional. La promoción del turismo hacia el interior del país se ve obstaculizada por los problemas de seguridad ciudadana y las limitaciones en infraestructura de transporte. Con el proceso de descentralización, buena parte de las competencias en planificación y gestión del turismo recaen sobre los gobiernos subnacionales, que tienen que fortalecer su capacidad técnica y ampliar sus fuentes de financiación para poder enfrentar a sus responsabilidades.
