The European tourism sector accounts for about 5% of the Union’s GDP and employment, providing jobs for an estimated 12 to 14 million Europeans. The forecast for the future remains sunny, but the industry is also facing certain challenges. Issue 8 explores the new strategy that the European Commission has recently proposed to ensure that Europe remains the world’s top tourist destination.
Other articles in this issue investigate the European Commission’s efforts to promote corporate social responsibility in different sectors, the EU’s Clean Vehicles Strategy, opportunities for eco-innovation, critical raw materials, SMEs and internationalisation, as well as national, regional and local initiatives which helped to build business-friendly environments.
