Tourism Satellite Account: 1997-1999

What it's about

The Tourism Satellite Account 1997-1999 provides a detailed analysis of the tourism industry. It updates results in the Tourism Satellite Account 1997, released in May 2001, and the Provisional Tourism Account 1998-2000, released August 2001. The Provisional Tourism Satellite Account 2000-2002 will be published on 31 March 2003. These reports are part of an ongoing programme funded by the Ministry of Tourism to enhance the understanding of the role that tourism plays in New Zealand.

Tourism plays a significant and increasing role in the New Zealand economy, in terms of production and employment. However, unlike 'conventional' industries, such as agriculture and manufacturing, tourism has not been explicitly measured in official economic statistics. Tourism satellite accounts, consistent and integrated with New Zealand's official national accounts, ensure that the importance of the tourism sector is measured and understood in the context of the New Zealand economy as a whole.

The Tourism Satellite Account 1997–1999 report presents tourism expenditure and tourism's impact on the New Zealand economy in terms of direct and indirect value added, and the number of persons directly employed as a result of tourism.

The report includes explanation of the concepts and methodology used. The methodology is consistent with guidelines published by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the World Tourism Organisation (WTO).
