Analysis Of Foreign Tourist Movement – The Requirement To Set Up Global Tourist Development Strategy



    ("Constantin Brancoveanu" University, Pitesti, Faculty of Management Marketing in Business Affaires, Ramnicu Valcea, Romania)


Tourism is a new social and economic phenomenon that really integrated within daily facts after the Second World War, more precisely in the early 60’s. Due to the major changes in the world economy, tourism has had a significant growth, hence its feature given by numerous authors as a ”phenomenon typical of the modern world” or a ”constituent of daily life”. Resorting to the statistics of the World Tourism Organization, one can notice that tourism generates almost 10% of world gross product, comprises around 9.4% of all investment efforts, mobilizes about 13% of population’s consumption expenses and provides work places to almost 9.4% of world working people (1 of 11.9 workers are directly employed in the tourist field). The statistics above show that tourism means an important factor in the process of economic growth, and it is essential that such activity be analyzed scientifically, objectively, from the perspective of tourist movement indicators.
