Table description


This table contains data on tourist expenditure. Tourism is not an industry in itself, but covers a wide range of products and services delivered to tourists from different industries. The figures are consistent with the conceptual framework of the National Accounts (NA ) and can be compared with existing macroeconomic indicators such as gross domestic product, the total value added and the total number of jobs in the Netherlands. The tourism accounts offer an integrated macroeconomic overview of the importance of tourism to the economy.
