Increasing intraregional tourism by deepening regional integration

This chapter focuses on intraregional tourism and the supportive role of regional integration and shows that continental tourism in Africa is important in terms of scope and value, similarly to global trends. The chapter goes on to explore why intraregional tourism is important from a theoretical point of view, quantifying intraregional tourism and characterizing intraregional tourists to assess its current scope and potential. Then, the chapter examines the role of regional integration and how it can facilitate intraregional tourism, focusing the discussion on the free movement of persons, regional tourism policy, currency convertibility and air connectivity.
