Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report 2017 for Bolivia

[To understand how to read this two-page report, please read first the description and then look at that portion of the report]


The left-hand page is divided into three sections:

1. Key indicators

This section presents several key indicators summarizing the context and the situation of a country’s economy and its T&T sector. It includes the number of international tourist arrivals per year, international tourists receipts (US$ millions), and the ratio between these two measures as of 2015. These data are provided by the UNWTO’s Yearbook of Tourism Statistics, Compendium of Tourism Statistics. International tourism receipts are expenditures by international inbound visitors, including payments to national carriers for international transport. These receipts include any other prepayment made for goods or services received in the destination country. They also may include receipts from same-day visitors, except when these are important enough to justify separate classi cation. For some countries they do not include receipts for passenger transport items. These data are based on the Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) framework developed by the UNWTO, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD), and Eurostat. The TSA makes estimates comparable across countries and with other internationally recognized macroeconomic aggregates and compilations. This section also includes T&T Industry GDP value, T&T industry value added as share of total economy, T&T Industry employment and T&T industry employment share in the total economy. These data are estimated by the World Travel & Touring Council (WTTC), using the TSA approach. WTTC estimates that current and projected future several trips to a given country during a given period will be counted as a new arrival each time. For more information regarding WTTC’s TSA Research, along with details on the methodology and data, are available at

2. Performance Overview

This section presents the economy’s performance on the overall Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index (TTCI), the four main components (subindexes) and the 14 pillars. For selected economies, it also includes a brief explanation of the performance. The performance on the single indicators composing each pillar is shown on the right-hand side page of each Country Profile.

3. Evolution of the TTCI Over Time

This section shows the country’s or economy’s performance on the T&T Competitiveness Index over time.


4. The Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index in detail

This page details the country’s performance on each of the indicators that make up the composition of the TTCI. Indicators are organized by pillar. See the Methodology and Data Source section for details on the structure of the TTCI as well as for the methodology underpinning the index.

Indicators derived from the World Economic Forum’s Executive Opinion Survey are always expressed as scores on a 1–7 scale, with 7 being the most desirable outcome. For these indicators, units are omitted for the sake of readability. For indicators that are not derived from the Survey, units are displayed next to the indicator name. A line depicts the evolution of this value since the 2015 edition of the Report (or the earliest period available).



It is a shame that there are NO improvements for Bolivia.

Well, for the last eleven years we had the misfortune to have fallen into the hands of the worst ochlocracy ever for Bolivia.

There are no capable public servants who could boost our tourism, despite having incredible wildlife, scenery and heritage!

To illustrate this governmental wrongdoings, suffice to mention one: the stupid tax on Israeli tourists, which has severely damaged Rurrenabaque region!

Bolivia lacks sound public policies to boost our tourism potential. Current pitiful government is only concerned in remaining in power, following the steps of their “leaders” in Venezuela … Bolivia has lost international credibility by the actions of the coca grower caudillo. A real shame!
