Abstract

The objectives of this paper are, firstly, to determine the role of tourism in the economic growth of the Arequipa region and, secondly, to propose actions that can shed light onto the policy making by the regional authorities which have selected the sector as a trigger of development. We have used the Ivanov and Webster methodology based on economic growth decomposition. Our results show tourism’s potential in Arequipa’s economy and the key role that community tourism could play in the conduct of the region’s socioeconomic characteristics and its environmental and cultural restrictions.
