Frontiers of New Tourism

M.P. Bezbaruah (Author)
Synopsis Tourism has become the largest industry of the world in the 21st Century. It had phenomenal growth in the later part of the 20th Century and despite the recent temporary impediments, all future projections are very exciting. Tourism offers immense opportunities to the developing countries to fashion their development strategies around it. While tourism thus makes the world a truly global village, such growth also poses various challenges. Countries desiring to take advantage of the boom have to achieve competitive advantage in technological developments related to civil aviation, use of information technology, development of human resources etc. These challenges have to be met with professional management and careful planning. This book looks at some of the emerging issues and concerns for the future. Global issues of sustainability are analysed in the Indian context to see how prepared India is to take advantage of the projected international tourism growth. The book takes us through the global scenario, with a telescopic view of the future and charts out the action agenda that will enable India to get its due share of the benefits in a highly competitive world.
