The developed countries have had a long history of gaining the greater benefit from trade between nations, and international tourism is a form of trade that represents exports as tourist arrivals. The economic development of world regions has increasingly been linked to tourism development and particularly the volume of tourist arrivals. Worldwide the share in tourism is increasingly spreading to less developed economies and it has been assumed that most world regional international tourism flows from the developed to the underdeveloped world, and forms a process of foreign exchange income. This paper examines the question of whether tourism arrivals volume has moved from the developed to underdeveloped countries over the recent period from 2000 to 2005.
