MetadataShow full item record
This paper discusses trends in tourism governance among OECD countries and identifies good practice. Governance is defined as the exercise of political, economic and administrative authority necessary to manage a nation's affairs. The material for this paper is derived from a review of government websites and publications, a survey of policy material provided to the OECD tourism unit by member countries and discussions with OECD and member country representatives. The paper draws together good practice from around the world and provides an assessment of governance issues from the perspective of national tourist administration organizations. Seven areas of good practice are identified.
