Supply Chain and Transport

Spain leads the World Economic Forum’s 2015 Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index. It is the first time the country has ranked top of the biennial report – published under the theme Growing through Shocks – and is a positive sign for the country’s nascent recovery.

The Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2015 ranks 141 countries across 14 separate dimensions, revealing how well countries could deliver sustainable economic and societal benefits through their travel and tourism sector. Spain’s leadership position is helped by a world class ranking in cultural resources (1st globally), its ability to support online searches for entertainment (4th) – a measure of how well the country has adapted to consumption habits brought on by the digital revolution – as well as excellent infrastructure (4th).

Here is the story in 9 charts:
