Many developing countries are currently expanding their tourist industries. Why is this the case? Is it a positive development?

Tourism in underdeveloped nations is gaining wide popularity these days due to governments’ great efforts to advocate and expand this kind of tertiary industry. However, despite the rising figures in the annual revenues, I do not regard it as a positive development in the long term, especially for the least developed countries.

Undeniably, tourism is an economic engine with great potential to drive financial growth in developing regions. Presenting jaw-dropping sceneries to the travelers, the natural landscapes also stand as one of the most low-cost sources of income for the less developed countries. Foreigners interested in exotic culture and customs are willing to spend much to experience a life far away from their familiar world. Therefore, expanding such industry is favoured by the government since the economic returns are quick and obvious.

A positive trend as it seems, emphasis on tourism in developing countries may bring more disadvantages in the long run. One of the most obvious challenge is that poor countries may lose their economic autonomy when becoming too reliant on this singular form of industry. Tourism in these areas are heavily dependent on external factors such as climate, consumers’ tastes and foreign policies toward them, all of which are unstable and hard to control. Once something goes wrong in the industry, there is no easy remedy to recover.

Moreover, expanding tourism poses a threat of “brain drain” in developing nations since job positions in such industry require less education and training. Children living in places with high demand for waiters and drivers certainly have less aspiration to attend university, which might seriously peril the future of the nation.

To sum up, focusing on developing tourism indeed brings deprived nations instant financial gains, therefore many countries are counting on it to get out of poverty. However, it does not mean we have found a panacea for the less developed countries, and it is unwise to heavily depend on tourism or even consider it the lifeblood of the nation.
