One billion tourists travelled all over the world in 2012, marking a new record for international tourism, according to the UN World Tourism Organisation. The tourism sector accounts for one in every 12 jobs and 30 % of the world’s services exports.

 

 

 

 

The figure strengthens tourism’s position as one of the largest economic sectors, with 9% of global GDP. Given its impact, UNWTO has launched the One Billion Tourists: One Billion Opportunities campaign to celebrate this milestone.
