Tourism GDP as a proportion of total GDP

This graph shows the proportion of value added by the tourism industry in the national GDP. Direct value added measures products sold directly to tourists. This measure is consistent with how other industries in the economy are measured, enabling comparisons between these industries. Indirect value added measures the purchase of products resold to tourists or products used in producing goods and services sold directly to tourists.

Direct tourism value added by industry

This graph shows the value added by tourism businesses.

Industry production breakdowns are not available for provisional years (such as year ended March 2021).
