FDI in Tourism
The Development DimensioneBook - 2007
From field-work and country experiences in developing countries, the FDI in Tourism ... program analyzes trends in investment in tourism, including: the move away from equity towards non-equity modes (licensing, franchising, and management contracts), and the rise of "South-South" investment and trade; the development implications of these trends, in terms of a number of social and economic indicators; the role of South Africa as a major source of outward FDI in the region, potential linkages that small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and transnational corporations (TNCs) could create to benefit local communities; and policy analysis and evaluation, including guidance on how to benefit from foreign direct investment in tourism.
