In many countries, tourism is the largest industry, yet one of the least globalized.
Rather counterintuitively, FDI in tourism is quite small, especially compared with
that in other economic activities. Although tourism-related FDI has increased
significantly in the last few years, direct investment abroad in the industry
accounts for less than 2% of total outward investment stock for most developed
countries, where these resources largely originate.18 • FDI tends to be found in
only a small ...

It is no surprise that Jamaica's export performance has suffered in the 1990s, and
it has come to rely more and more on its natural resource based advantages,
primarily tourism and bauxite-alumina. The Role of FDI Export performance has
been found to be positively and consistently related to FDI in a large number of
studies, especially in high-technology products in developing countries.15 In the

From the local standpoint, the following features of China's tourism industry are
particularly noteworthy: (1) Preferential treatment of international tourism sector in
the national industrial policy One of the strongest momentums of the Chinese
economy in the post- reform era is export orientation. Since the early 1980s, all

Tourism is one of the most important industries in many countries around the
world and is one of the main export services in a domestic economy. FDI plays an
increasingly important role in the global economy and has an enormous impact
on a domestic economy, and its tourism industry, in particular. Internationalization

Now there is little link, if any, between commitments on commercial presence and
effective foreign direct investment (FDI), and no direct links between liberalization
and social improvement in developing countries thanks to commercial presence
