Benchmarking of OECD national tourism policies

 

The Tourism Committee’s work on the benchmarking of national tourism policies is unique in the world. It supports OECD countries in the formulation of tourism policy and in enhancing coherence and linkages with other policies. The reviews make both sides more conscious of the problems that arise in connection with tourism policy, help to identify the shortcomings, the disadvantages and the positive achievements of national tourism policies (good and bad practice) and to assess the economic, environmental and social effects of these policies. In the end, this work contributes to better integrating tourism policies in the broader policy agenda and to provide solutions to the specific tourism problems encountered in OECD countries.
