    Tourism direct contribution to GDP, percentage of GDP. Tourism is the activity of persons travelling to and staying in places outside their usual environment for not more than one consecutive year for leisure, business and other purposes not remunerated from within the place visited. The phrase “usual environment” is introduced to exclude from the concept of ‘visitor’ persons commuting every day between their home and place of work or study, or other places frequently visited.
