The aim of this study is twofold. First of all, it is to draw attention to the need for a long-term development, strategy in the Third World as a first requirement. The second aim is to emphasize the necessity for each sector of the economy in a developing economy to act in accordance with the objectives of the development strategy chosen. Development plans and planning have been with the developing countries for an appreciable length of time now. In spite of these plans-and efforts geared towards developing these regions, there is no improvement in their condition that might be considered lasting. We attempt to find out the cause of the failure to develop. The study is divided into three parts. Part I is devoted to an analysis of the development problem and a survey of the tourism phenomenon on a world-wide scale. The other half of Part I is a fairly detailed description of the tourist sector. Part. Ill of the work relates the characteristics of the tourist business to the needs that development imposes on an economy.
