The 2017 edition of the Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report features the latest iteration of the Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Index (TTCI). Published biennially, the TTCI benchmarks the T&T competitiveness of 136 economies.  The TTCI measures “the set of factors and policies that enable the sustainable development of the Travel & Tourism (T&T) sector, which in turn, contributes to the development and competitiveness of a country.” It comprises four sub-indexes, 14 pillars, and 90 individual indicators, distributed among the 
different pillars. 


The Americas is the macro region with the second most improved performance at the aggregate level, with the United States (6th), Canada (9th), Mexico (22nd) and Brazil (27th) all ranking in the top 30. While the majority of the countries in the region rely on rich natural resources, vast differences remain across the region. While North America should enhance its  price competitiveness, environmental sustainability and  infrastructure; Central and South American nations should continue improving their safety and security, create more enabling environments for business and develop their infrastructure to enhance connectivity.
