Many developing countries are looking to tourism as an avenue for economic and human development, and foreign direct investment (FDI) is one of the routes through which they can carry out tourism. This study highlights the main findings with respect to the development impacts of foreign direct investment in tourism (TFDI) in five East and South African countries, on income, employment, technology and skills transfer, wages and linkages, as well as the social and environmental impacts. It also examines the salient policies that are in place, identifying those that have hindered and promoted TFDI.--Publisher's description.
