Abstract

Tourism is increasingly a major aspect of the global economy, the global market share of the Asian and Pacific region increased from 15.7 per cent in 1996 to 19.8 per cent in 2006.With the growing recognition of tourism as a source of employment generating growth in the countries, improved understanding of what tourism is, its role in the economy and its relationship to other parts of the economy is important. The Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) is a new framework recently adopted by the United Nations Statistical Commission that provides an important platform towards forging improved understanding of the structure and role of tourism in the economy. Estimates using the TSA framework have the advantage of being credible, with the methodology now widely accepted, and internationally comparable. In the Asian and Pacific countries, the development of the Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) is an important step in obtaining world recognition and support. The aim of this study is to analyze how the TSA conceptual framework is working in the Asia Pacific region with particular attention to the measurement of the economic importance of the industry. The focus is on the use and analysis of TSA in different countries. In this study the survey method was used along with secondary reports, results indicate that a number of countries have already been using the TSA or in the process of initiating its use. Challenges include deficiencies in the information base, major gaps in the data and weaknesses in the comprehensiveness of otherwise useful sources, further implications regarding the TSA are identified.

Abstract

Asian Highway route No. 4, the only main national highway that links to the North South Economic corridor of the Greater Mekong Sub-region at Bangkok, is the gateway for East Asian countries to enter into the Thailand by land transport. Hence, the twin purposes of this paper are to a) appraise the present state of international tourist arrivals by land transport into Songkhla province of Thailand and to b) model the associated risk. Conditional mean and conditional volatility models from the ARCH family were adopted to illustrate the behavior of daily international tourist arrivals into the province. The parameters of the conditional mean and conditional volatility models are statistically significant and the Quasi Maximum Likelihood estimators are also valid and statistically consistent. The results show that almost 80% of those arrivals were from Malaysia and that short run risk is persistent. Negative asymmetric behavior is also observed in the daily international arrivals by land. The strategic implications of this empirical study envisage sufficient room for intervening or amending provincial tourism policy to better attract and stabilize Malaysian tourist arrivals and to promote tourism as a local business.

Abstract

The purpose of this paper was to investigate internships in the hospitality sector and identify factors that contribute to student satisfaction from this working and learning experience. Students that had completed their internships from both public and private higher education institutions in Greece participated in this study. The findings suggest that overall students demonstrated a favourable perception towards their internship experience. This research also suggests that working in a professional environment, the learning experience, social interaction with supervisors/staff and the working conditions are factors that contribute to motivation and student satisfaction from internships. Finally, student expectations towards the internship experience were focused in learning and working in a professional environment. Long working hours, low or poor pay and lack of coordination are the issues that were raised and contribute to low satisfaction.

Abstract

This study has examined the factors affecting for the demand for agritourism in Sri Lanka. Demographic factors, awareness and desire on agritourism of the visitors and purposes of visiting agritourism operations have also been examined. The study was based on a survey of 128 local visitors in one of the agritourism operations in the country. Stepwise regression analysis was used to analyze the data. Agritourism visitors are middle aged educated employees having higher monthly income. Further most of them are married and have children. The awareness level on agritourism in Sri Lankan visitors is at a lower level. Agritourism visitors have mentioned four main purposes of visiting agritourism operations such as resting, enjoyment and recreation, education. Results of the regression analysis shows that only three variables (household income, urban residency, and availability of vehicle facility) have positive effects and two variables (the distance to the agritourism destination and individual travel cost) have negative effects for the demand for agritourism in Sri Lanka.
