Potential for Jobs in Tourism in Europe

The High-Level Group on Tourism and Employment reported to the Commission last week that tourism could create between 2.2m and 3.3m new jobs in the EU by 2010, expecting growth faster than the economy as a whole. It proposes five main areas for action in order to promote job creation: 1) greater business expertise to take account of guests’ needs; 2) improving the business environment; 3) modernisation of transport infrastructures by EU and MSs; 4) upgrading of human resources; and 5) integration of sustainable development principles.
