Forecast predicts probable development of processes and phenomena from the achievements of the previous period, the trends outlined and taking into account changes expected to occur. The purpose of the paper is to capture the importance of interest made in macroeconomic forecasts that focus on aspects of tourism demand and some aspects of supply.
