Tourism

Each country guide includes forecasts for sectors that are specific to that country.  For example, this section covers the tourism sector in Spain, including hiring trends and areas of job promise.

Below is a brief excerpt from this section:

Overview

Spain takes its tourism industry very seriously, since it represents more 16% of the national GDP and has played a key role in the country’s economic recovery. Spain is third in the world for international visitors, second globally in terms of revenue from foreign visitors and third globally as a destination for meetings and conferences. In the last 12 months, according to the World Economic Forum, Spain presents the most competitive tourism industry in the world, followed by France and Germany.

Most tourists come from northern European countries such as Scandinavia, Germany and the United Kingdom, although last year saw an increase in tourists from emerging economies such as China, Russia and Brazil using tour packages. Over the last nine months, Spain received more than 60 million foreign tourists, a record 10.1% increase over the last six years, according to the Tourist Border Movement Survey (FRONTUR). Despite Brexit, British tourists, as well as French, German and Irish visitors, helped drive this historic increase of tourists this year. 

This is just a brief sample of the extensive information in the GoinGlobal Spain Career Guide, which is carefully researched and regularly updated by career experts.
