Peru is the fourth most competitive South American nation in travel and tourism, standing out in natural and cultural resources, infrastructure, education level, quality of tourism service, among other indexes.

According to the WEF Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2017, Peru occupies the 51st position in the global ranking, rising 7 places from the 2015 report (58th).

This way, the Andean nation is among the fourth most competitive South American industries in the travel and tourism sector.

The top four nations are Brazil, Chile, Argentina and Peru.

The Travel & Tourism Competitiveness Report 2017 contains detailed profiles for each of the 136 economies featured in the study, and measures four broad factors of competitiveness: Enabling Environment, T&T Policy and Enabling Conditions, Infrastructure, as well as Natural and Cultural Resources.

Economies get scores from 1 to 7 —with 7 corresponding to the best performance— reflecting each country's overall performance.

The overall index is topped by Spain, followed by France, Germany, Japan, United Kingdom, United States, Australia, Italy, Canada and Switzerland.

For the past 11 years, the WEF has engaged leaders in travel and tourism to carry out an in-depth analysis of the Travel and Tourism competitiveness of 136 economies across the world.

The Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Index measures "the set of factors and policies that enable the sustainable development of the travel and tourism sector, which in turn, contributes to the development and competitiveness of a country."

This report enables all stakeholders to work together to improve the industry's competitiveness in their national economies.
