Given the importance of tourism in the overall economic growth in the country, one would wonder how much income does tourism bring into the country. In response to this, the National Statistical Coordination Board (NSCB) and the Department of Tourism (DOT) are closely working together to measure the contribution of tourism in the economy through the institutionalization of the PTSA.


Press Release
Contribution of Tourism to the Economy is 7.8 Percent in 2014
(PR-20152107, Posted 21 July 2015)

As measured by the share of tourism direct gross value added (TDGVA) to total gross domestic product (GDP), the contribution of tourism to the economy was estimated at 7.8 percent in 2014.  Tourism cuts across different sectors of the economy and the TDGVA serves as the indicator to measure the value added of different industries in relation to tourism activities of both inbound and domestic visitors in the country.  The TDGVA amounted to PhP 982.4 billion in 2014, higher by 14.0 percent compared to previous year’s PhP 861.7 billion.   [more]
