Oliver Wyman works with the world’s leading journey and leisure companies, together with hotel, airways, passenger rail and bus operators, theme parks, cruise operators, gaming and lottery companies, tour operators and travel agencies, airports, rail stations, and concessionaires, as well as non-public equity corporations. The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) estimates a 4.5 per cent every year increase within the total quantity of travel and tourism economic activity between 2002 and 2012. This is largely credited to an increase in international wealth, liberalization of international airspace, cheaper flights and the use of the Internet as a travel device. The earnings from tourism have made it one of many world’s largest industries and the quickest rising sectors of global trade accounting for 10.7 per cent of worldwide gross home product (GDP), 12.8 per cent of global exports, eight.2 per cent of world employment (or one in every 12.2 jobs), and 9.4 per cent of world capital funding.
