Countries that make the most money from tourism: UNWTO report reveals the top tourist industries | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

Tourism is booming. That's the takeaway from the 2018 edition of the United Nations World Tourism Organisation's recently released Tourism Highlights report.

In 2017, each of Australia's 8.8 million international visitors spent on average $US4734. More than in Liechtenstein, more than in the US, more than in the UAE. The figure for New Zealand that year was $US2893 per visitor, and although travel costs in New Zealand are about on par with Australia's, most visitors spend less time there, which accounts for the difference in average spend.

India - A Key Inbound Market for Australia | The Insight Files | Scoop.it

has been remarkable – a result of a range of reform efforts
including lower tariffs, exchange rate reforms and opening up

2015, India’s population has increased over 50% to almost
1.3 billion, with over 700 million aged under 30. Over a similar
period, national literacy has grown from just over half the
population to almost three-quarters, and per-capita incomes
have increased five-fold in real terms. As a point of reference,
