The World Economic Forum has launched the first-ever Travel and Tourism Index covering 124 countries around the world.
In many countries, travel and tourism is a critical sector impacting national prosperity and economic growth. A cross-country analysis of the drivers of competitiveness in travel and tourism will provide useful comparative information for making business decisions and provide additional value to governments wishing to improve their travel and tourism environments.
“The index is not a ‘beauty contest’, or a statement about the attractiveness of a country. On the contrary, the index measures the factors that make it attractive to develop the travel and tourism industry of individual countries,” said Jennifer Blanke, Senior Economist of the World Economic Forum.

Such as these criteria?
I love going to Switzerland - too bad that on one of my last two trips I was miserable due to pollen allergies. But I very much enjoyed the week I spent there last summer, and I'm looking forward to when I can go back.
7 billion, one nation, imagination...it's a beautiful day

Quoting David L (Reply 20): a submarine in Lake Geneva (sorry, but that's what it's called in English)
that lake also in German is the Genfersee, but in French Lac de Geneve only means the last section of the Lac Leman. Just as there is no "Lake of Constance" in German language but the Bodensee. What you refer to is the small submarine of Mr Piccard which was in service off Lausanne during the National Exposition of 1964 (Expo64) and now is in the Traffic Museum in Lucerne .
