This paper discusses the issues of tourism and immigration as major factors which assist in globalization. It addresses the points of foreign labor, recruitment, cultural concerns, immigration and job displacement.

From the paper:

"In many countries, where tourism has become a major export industry, the hospitality sector is the focal point for concepts of globalization to take root. Indeed, tourism has become the world?s largest export industry, involving as it does enormous cross-border flows of people and capital. The hospitality industry is one of the world?s largest employers and arguably one of the largest traders of foreign currency. It is often also a focal point for local society, and is clearly at the center of the transfer of ideas and the cross fertilization of cultures. At its heart, the hospitality industry plays an important part physically in bringing people together in a global community. And those countries suffering from trade imbalances due to high imports frequently look to tourism and hospitality to close the gap. Hospitality is thus not only an industry, it is a concept -- and a major force in the rapidly evolving global marketplace. "
