In 2016, the travel and tourism industry contributed an astonishing $7.6 trillion to the global economy – that’s 10.2% of global GDP.

It also generated a total of 292 million jobs, which means that 1 in 10 people work in the sector. The numbers of international arrivals are just as impressive, reaching 1.2 billion in 2016, 46 million more than in 2015.
