Since 2007, the World Economic Forum has produced the first report on the Global Tourism Competitiveness Index. Over the past 15 years, this report has truly become a leading “metric” of prestige in the world tourism industry.
However, in the past 2 years, the heavy damage of the tourism industry due to the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic has completely changed the approach of the World Economic Forum. This organization has moved from assessing and ranking the Competitiveness Index to the Development Index. This mindset is evident in the theme of the 2021 report: “Reconstruction for a more sustainable and resilient future”.

More and more tourism services are accessible via digital platforms such as online travel agencies (OTAs), sharing economy, online booking, electronic payments, mobile devices… guests more convenience, more choices and less face-to-face contact, increasing the seamless visitor experience. Besides, health care, working conditions, socio-economic conditions, social protection… are also issues that need attention.

The Tourism Competitiveness Index has been used for the past 15 years. However, in the face of a new context after the Covid-19 pandemic, the World Economic Forum took a new approach, switching to a new set of indicators measuring tourism development capacity.
The tourism development capacity index consists of 5 groups with 17 pillar indexes and is subdivided into 112 sub-indices. Meanwhile, the tourism competitiveness index previously had 4 groups with 14 pillar indexes and subdivided into 90 sub-indices. The tourism development capacity index set has been adjusted and new indicators have been added to focus on assessing the sustainability of tourism.
