The Impact of the European Union Enlargement on Tourism Development


  • Oana Chindris-Vasioiu


  • Madalina Cristina Tocan



Tourism, as well as politics and economy in general, will have to face the globalization trend (i.e. power on the rise of international economic forces, as well as long lasting decline of the Member States' ability to control economy in contrast to private corporations' ability to dominate markets in geographical areas limited). The impact on tourism is given by the fact that more power will be obtained by the relatively small networks of global tourism. European industry of tourism will then face a growing competition both from inside and outside the region. A number of factors contribute to this situation (economic competitiveness and financial, political decision-makers, social changes and demographic, technological innovation etc.) Including promotional activities of the regions compete with each other.
