2.     Program overview

Tourism and Hotel industries are the two sides of a coin. They are perhaps among the oldest commercial endeavors in the world. Hospitality industry contributes immensely to a nation's economic development in many ways, in addition to the immediately apparent prospects of creating jobs and boosting overall income. The industry fosters government revenues from sales taxes and duties and often boosts property-tax receipts. It also brings in foreign exchange and stimulates development of basic infrastructure. Tourist establishments, particularly hotels, buy from domestic sources and can help the development of such national industries as agriculture, food processing and commercial fishing, among others. The development of hotels also attracts other foreign investment and facilitates the transfer of technology, as in the case of computer-based reservation systems (CRS).
