Still haven't decided where you're going on vacation this year? Well, the list that we are going to present today may be very useful to you! We are referring to the results of the Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report that the World Economic Forum carries out every two years with data from the World Tourism Organization and the World Travel and Tourism Council.
This study measures the set of factors and policies that allow the sustainable development of tourism, evaluating 14 areas related to the sector: business environment, security and protection, health and hygiene, infrastructure, international openness, environmental sustainability, natural resources, cultural resources ... We are very pleased to announce that, for the second time, Spain has managed to position itself in the first position of the ranking. Do you want to discover the top 10 of the best countries in the world to travel in 2017? Well very attentive!
As we have just mentioned, Spain has managed to position itself in the first position of the ranking thanks, among other things, to its offer of cultural and natural proposals, its good tourist infrastructures and support policies. Besides, the instability Registered in the Middle East and some areas of Western Europe have also had something to do with this first position.
Despite the terrorist attacks that France suffered in 2015 and 2016, it has managed to remain in second place in the ranking. Of course, how could it be otherwise, it has lost points in terms of security. If this country stands out in anything, it is in cultural resources.
Third on the list is also occupied by a European country. This is Germany, which offers a unique offer of cultural resources and business trips. We must also highlight its connectivity, its tourist services infrastructure, its strong market and its environmental policy, although they have lost many points in security and international openness.
Located in fourth position in the ranking, Japan leads the Asia-Pacific region, having improved five positions compared to the previous report. International tourists dress Japan so much for its resources cultural unique as for their business. In addition, its developed transport and network infrastructure system should be highlighted.
In fifth place on the list we find the United Kingdom, one of the most visited countries in Europe. Its success can be attributed to its excellent culture of human resources, its infrastructure and its environment of business. Of course, as in other countries in Europe, security has decreased.
The first American country in the top 10 is the United States, which is in sixth position because it offers a very favorable environment for companies. We must also highlight its transport air and its exceptional tourist infrastructure, which allows tourists to access its natural and cultural resources. Instead, they suspend environmental sustainability.
We changed continents to talk to you about Australia, which stands out in areas such as opening international, natural resources and tourist infrastructure. In addition, as in the United States, its air transport also stands out.
We return to Europe to tell you about Italy, a country that stands out for its resources cultural and natural. In addition, it also has good tourist infrastructure.
In ninth position we find Canada, which has the most efficient worldwide. In addition, it also has a good tourist infrastructure and a fairly high level of security.
Finally, we must talk about Switzerland, which closes the top 10. It stands out for its qualified human resources, its business environment and its security standards, as well as for its advanced preparation for ICT. As if that were not enough, your transport system is very good developed.
