The tourism industry is a major contributor to the world economy. According to the estimates of the World Tourism Organization (WTO), international tourism alone generated $1.4 trillion in receipts (4.1 per cent of World GDP) in 2000.

Therefore, as of now, tourism is one of the industries that help the people and the country in terms of finance.

As tourism serves as the main market for hotel and restaurant services, increase in visitor traffic over the past ten years resulted in a corresponding boom in the hotel and restaurant industry. During the last decade, the hotel and restaurant industry has flourished even as it struggled to cope with difficult challenges. New hotels mushroomed in the capital while older hotels have done their best to spruce-up both their interiors and upgrade services. Likewise, the growth of the restaurant sub-sector, the number of players and the variety of services offered, has been notable during the period. An in-depth study on the Hotel and Restaurant Industry in the Philippines. (p. 6, 2001) Dr. Divina M. Edralin and Ms. Paulynne Castillo

The Philippines, according to the WTTC, is positioned at the epicenter of global travel and tourism growth and development. In 1997, tourism contributed 8.7% of the country’s GDP, generating 2.3 million jobs (or one in every nine nationwide), and accounting for some 10.5% of Philippine investments. The trade surplus from tourism for the same period was estimated at PHP22 billion, driven mainly by visitor spending. The WTTC expects tourism to contribute 10.9% of the country’s GDP by 2007, and to generate as much as 1.4 million more jobs between 1998 and 2007.

Despite the economic crisis suffered by its Asian markets, the Philippines’ foreign exchange receipts from tourism went up by 5.83% from $2.41 billion in 1998 to $2.55 billion in 1999. Moreover, the Philippines enjoyed the highest repeat visitors in Asia at 54.22 percent, indicating that the tourism sector can survive external threats and competition in the region
