Tourism balance of payments and long-term strategies


Balance of payments is one of the essential measures of the tourism situation of a country. In the tourism sector, it is better to have a positive balance of payments, meaning that more money is spent inside the country rather than abroad.

For each country, domestic tourism is really important because money stays into the country and for foreigner tourists, it’s important to set incentives to stay longer and spend more in the country.
