Evolutions And Tendencies In The Global Tourism Traffic


  • Carmen, IORDACHE

    (“Constantin Brâncoveanu” University, 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”. The men of the future consider that XXI century will be the beginning of a post-industrial society, the communications, the information technology and the tourism being the economical leading domains. Resorting to the statistics of the World Tourism Organization, we can notice that tourism generates almost 9,7% of world gross product, comprises around 4.7% of all investment efforts, mobilizes about 12% of population’s consumption expenses and provides work places to almost 8.7% of world working people (1 of 12.3 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 an activity must be analyzed scientifically, objectively, from the perspective of tourist movement indicators
