The majority of countries/ territories in the Caribbean is highly dependent on tourism as a source of income and employment. To attain maximum benefits from tourism development governments are urged by international aid donors to reduce leakages of gross tourism receipts and increase linkages of the tourism sector with other sectors of the national economy. A structural review of the inherent characteristics of Caribbean countries/ territories shows that this may be an unworkable advice. Many countries may be better off simply promoting upmarket tourism in order to maximise gross receipts, thus also maximising net receipts from tourism. (original abstract)
