الملخصStudy aims to “assess the role of Arab tourism in economic and human development as a group alone and together with the global, in a similar comparative estimates”. The focus of the analysis will be on determining the difference between both groups in performance and directions. Also with their interior performance and with the other global aggregates. The work has supposed that “concrete contribution of the Arab tourism sector in developing most economies is modest, owing that to the state failure in developing the tourism sector itself and to a lack of investment for individuals in.”
The study tried: to address the relationship of tourism development and economic development; to find how regionally to develop it, besides the competitiveness indicators of Arabic travel and tourism; to estimate the impact of tourism on economic and human development; to estimate tourism movement with economic performance and human development; and to estimate the global relations between tourism performance with economic and human development.
The results have confirmed the importance of the tourism sector at the Arab economies, for both economic development and human development, but hadn't positive impact to contribute economic growth before an improvement of per capita GDP by 1.17%, and before somewhat improve in the human development indicators by 2.17%. While the international reality is best, uncertain statistical significance of many effects were so important on the economic performance and human development. These effects refer to: the importance of tourism competitiveness, human capital (education scale); and the gap of performance - human development. In fact, their interactions and estimates were completely settled in the simple and multiple relations. The Arab economies, in general, and particular in many, as Jordan, Lebanon, Saudi Arabia and Egypt have the opportunity for tourism industry and to support it as an important source for growth and progress. Cases with the education a much better.
