GLOBAL: Major tourism report gives pointers for medical tourism


Countries that are attractive to tourists are often very attractive to health and medical tourists, while the problems that affect some countries can also hold back medical tourism.

The fifth Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report ranks 140 countries according to their attractiveness and ability to develop their travel and tourism industries. The World Economic Forum produced the report in collaboration with Booz & Company, Deloitte, the International Air Transport Association, the World Tourism Organization and the World Travel & Tourism Council.

The 517-page report uses a combination of data from publicly available sources, international travel and tourism institutions and experts. The report’s cross-country analysis of the drivers of competitiveness in travel and tourism provides comparative information that is useful in business decision-making for business. It does not include specific information on medical tourism but does offer vital information on visas, government attititudes to tourism, customer safety and transport infrastructure.
