At a time when the continent is building its productive capacities, deepening regional integration and pursuing economic diversification, tourism in Africa continues to grow. To better harness the potential of the tourism sector to contribute to inclusive growth, structural transformation and achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals, Africa should adopt policies that strengthen intersectoral linkages, boost intraregional tourism and promote peace. The Economic Development in Africa Report 2017 examines some of the underlying policy issues of the tourism sector and provides policy guidance on how tourism could contribute to the continent’s structural transformation.
