Tourism; expenditure, National Accounts

Table description


This table contains the expenditures of resident and non-resident tourists in the Dutch economy, as well as the expenditures of resident tourists abroad.

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.
