WEF Travel and Tourism Competitive Report

The World Economic Forum just released its Travel and Tourism Competitive Report, ranking 124 countries. Canada fared quite well: it landed a 7th place, well ahead of Australia (13) and New Zealand (14), but behind the US (5). We even received 4th for business environment and infrastructure, but 15th for regulatory framework, and 16th for human, cultural and natural resources. Switzerland and Austria led the pack. Executive Summary.

We ranked #1 on many of the indicators, especially those related to health and safety. However, we did poorly on price competitiveness. Ticket taxes and airport charges, for example, ranked 117th, price competitiveness in T&T industry 110th, and purchasing power parity 100th. Country profile for Canada.
