Popis / Abstract:

Small Island Developing States (SIDS) represent a heterogeneous group of countries with specific development challenges. One of the common characteristics is a significant tourist potential which is not sufficiently exploited in many SIDS. The paper focuses on the analysis of factors that can influence the number of foreign tourists arriving in SIDS. The statistical significance of potentially relevant factors is exa-mined by regression analysis applied to panel data over 2005 – 2016. The results indicate that the key determinants of tourism demand are destination accessibility, climate (pattern of the weather) and the level of economic development of destinations. Hygienic conditions and tourism infrastructure development are also important factors for tourism inflows. On the contrary, the level of political stability and absence of violence/terrorism play a less statistically significant role in international tourist arrivals while the level of prices and the rate of intentional homicide do not show any statistical significance. The results also suggest that SIDS should improve transport and tourism infrastructure and that they should increase the hygienic standards to attract more international tourists. However, due to the inherent environmental fragility and cultural uniqueness of many small islands, the SIDS must pay special attention to sustainable tourism development at the same time.
