Europe, with six economies in the top 10, continues to dominate the rankings, reveals the Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2015. This has been possible thanks to Europe’s world-class tourism service infrastructure, excellent health and hygiene conditions, and—notably, thanks to the Schengen Area—high degree of international openness and integration.
However, there are still some significant divides across the region, says the report.
Not all European countries are making the most of their cultural resources, prioritizing the Travel &Tourism sector to respond to new trends, or fostering a dynamic business environment by removing red tape.
