Tourism; key indicators, National Accounts


This table contains contribution of tourism to the Dutch economy (employment, expenditure and value added at basic prices). Tourism is not an industry in itself, but covers a wide range of products and services. The figures are consistent with the conceptual framework of the National Accounts (NA) and can be compared with existing macroeconomic indicators such as the total value added at basic prises and employment in the Netherlands. The tourism accounts offer an integrated macroeconomic overview of the importance of tourism to the economy.
