Synopsis

This unit provides an introduction to the tourism policy, process, approaches and implications. The unit considers how and why governments develop policies that affect the tourism industry, related sectors, and the community. Through our individual and collective experiences, this unit will develop an understanding of tourism policy that will enable new interpretations of how tourism can be prepared for at national, local and business levels. The main areas covered include the roles of international to local level government and organisations in tourism policy, the inclusion of partners and stakeholders in tourism policy and implementation, and contemporary tourism policy issues.
