OECD Tourism Trends and Policies 2022
Tourism has been hit hard by the depth and duration of the crisis triggered by the
COVID-19 pandemic. Just as the sector was starting to rebound, the economic fallout
from Russia’s aggression against Ukraine has dealt a fresh blow to recovery prospects.
The 2022 edition of OECD Tourism Trends and Policies analyses tourism performance
and policy trends to support recovery across 50 OECD countries and partner economies.
It examines the key tourism recovery challenges and outlook ahead, and highlights
the need for co-ordinated, forward-looking policy approaches to set tourism on a path
to a more resilient, sustainable and inclusive future. Evidence on the significance
of the tourism economy is presented, with data covering domestic, inbound and outbound
tourism, enterprises and employment, and internal tourism consumption. Tourism policy
priorities, reforms and developments are analysed and examples of country practices
highlighted. Thematic chapters provide insights on building resilience in the tourism
ecosystem and promoting a green tourism recovery.
