In this paper I have tried an analysis of effective economic and social situation of tourism taking into account both the contribution tourist services to GDP and evolution of employment in the tourism sector. We also give particular importance to objectives of tourism activity. The position and the contribution that tourism, as a branch of tertiary sector, one can have all the gross national product of a country, its beneficial effects on social, cultural, and the environment, require integration to one of the priorities on which any government when considering overall strategy of economic development. Due to the evolution of its worldwide, tourism has become for many countries an important factor for economic and social development. The magnitude and complexity of links between tourism and the other branches of the national economy governments impose their harmonization with an opportunity of drawing up economic and social general development strategy.
