INTRODUCTION

The tourism industry has established itself as one of the worlds major industries, one that offers significant opportunities for employment creation, local economic development and integration in to the international market. Tourism generates jobs and business opportunities for host populations, and can help reduce or eliminate poverty. Tourism is now a huge contributor to the economies of many islands and nations. The travel and tourism sector creates more jobs per million rupees of investment than any other sector of the economy and is capable of providing employment to a wide spectrum of job seekers from the unskilled to the specialized, even in the remote parts of the country

HISTORY :

Tourism begins with British mountaineers climbing the main peaks of the Bernese Alps in the early 19th century (Jungfrau 1811, Finsteraarhorn 1812). The Alpine Club in London is founded in 1857. Reconvalescence in the Alpine climate, in particular from Tuberculosis, is another important branch of tourism in the 19th and early 20th centuries for example in Davos, Graubnden. Because of the prominence of the Bernese Alps in British mountaineering, the Bernese Oberland was long especially known as a tourist destination. Meiringen's Reichenbach Falls achieved literary fame as the site of the fictional death of Sir Arthur Conan Doyle's Sherlock Holmes (1893). The first organised tourist holidays to Switzerland were offered during the 19th century by the Thomas Cook and Lunn Travel companies

SWITZERLAND TOURISM INDUSTRY

Tourism can be understood as a final consumption by households for holidays or as an intermediate stage in the production of goods and services (business travel), which through the spending of domestic and foreign visitors creates turnover and added value for a great many companies and different sectors of the economy Exhaustive preliminary studies have shown that the aggregated value creation of tourism dependent economic sectors in Switzerland accounts for about SFr26,000 million or around 5-6 per cent of the gross domestic product (GDP). Switzerlands tourism was comparable to Uruguay, a rather small country bordering Switzerland. Although the tourism industry had grown since then, it is still less than impressive, especially considering Zurich and Geneva earns three quarters more through the industry.
