Foreign Direct Investment and Tourism in East and Southern Africa

In this paper , foreign direct investment is discussed as one route through which developing countries can promote tourism. However, the dynamics of FDI in this sector, have not been studied extensively.There is very little empirical information about the extent of tourism-related FDI in the global economy or its overall impact. Because tourism is an industry that needs to be managed carefully, with or without FDI, and because FDI poses special challenges and concerns, this report aims to provide information and analyses that will assist policy-makers to design policies that most support their development objectives and strategies.” For more on this report, you can visit http://www.unctad.org/en/docs/diaeia20086_en.pdf
