From the Paper:

"Due in large measure to recent innovations in telecommunications, particularly the Internet, people all over the world are learning about new and fascinating places they would like to visit; because of improvement in transportation, they also have better ways to get to these formerly inaccessible destinations. As a result, travel and tourism has emerged in the 21st century as one of the world's largest industries with particular importance for countries with valuable tourist destination such as those in the United States, the Pacific, the European Union and the United Kingdom. The adverse impact of recent surges in terrorism, though, - even in presumably "safe" destinations - has given the travel and tourism industry much to consider today. During a period when even environmentalists are promoting travel and tourism in an effort to help preserve endangered regions and species, understanding the impact of terrorism on the international travel and tourism has assumed new levels of importance."
