Small Arms and Tourism. (n.d.). Small Arms and Tourism. Retrieved from

Excerpt: Tourism is one of the fastest growing industries in the world and a leading source of revenue for many developing countries. According to the World Tourism Organization, tourism is among the top five “exports” for 83% of countries and the top export for almost 40%. Tourism has one of the highest rates of job creation, both directly within the industry and in related areas. Tourism also helps bring in foreign currency, providing a more consistent source of income than exports like coffee or other primary goods. Yet the dangers associated with the proliferation of small arms may drive tourists away, often from the countries most dependent on it as a source of revenue. Violence in several African states, for example, reduced tourism by 1/3 to 1/2 in the late 1990’s.
