Tourism in the light of the economy

As part of the cycle of lectures by new researchers at the Institute of Social Sciences, dr Slavoljub Vujović, a Principal Research Fellow from the Centre for Economic Research, held a lecture on March 25, 2024 in the Great Hall of the Institute of Social Sciences on the topic „Tourism in the light of the economy”.

Previous research and analysis of foreign and domestic literature, especially statistics on the number of arrivals, overnight stays, realized income and volume of capital that is traded on the world tourism market, point to the need for more serious and comprehensive multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research and defining the role and importance of tourism in wider economic and social development processes. Accordingly, the lecture was devoted to the relationship between tourism and the economy, that is, the breadth of the economy in relation to tourism, as well as their mutual connection.

Precisely because of the importance of the relationship and interdependence of tourism and the economy, this lecture seeks to encourage new multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary research into the development of the theoretical basis of tourism as a special scientific discipline of “тourismology”, then, the basis for the development of critical approaches to the study of the connection of other activities with tourism, the spread of new approaches, concepts, networks and models that can be developed and applied in the study of tourism, and the promotion of new research. Also, during the lecture, it was pointed out that tourism, when it comes to sectors of the economy, is placed in the service (tertiary) sector of the economy, while through the analysis of direct and indirect, especially multiplicative effects, tourism can be linked to all sectors and activities of the economy.

During the discussion, based on previous research, it was emphasized that the degree of tourism development in a country is directly correlated with the level of education. It was pointed out that countries with a high degree of educated citizens achieve high incomes from tourism. Spain, Italy, France and Austria are cited as examples of good practice. At the end of the lecture, it was concluded that comparative analysis can be useful and expedient in planning the further development of domestic tourism.
