By 2025, the sector aims to contribute 10 per cent of the country’s gross domestic product (GDP) and generate income for six million people, but to reach the target, it needs nearly 40,000 additional employees each year. About 15,000 students from tourism and hospitality schools graduate each year, with university and college students accounting for only 12 per cent. There are currently 1.3 million employees working in the tourism and hospitality sector nationwide, with only 42 per cent of them trained in tourism. The number of tourism staff needed by 2020 is expected to be 870,000, according to the Government’s Strategy for Tourism Development to 2020, with a vision to 2030.
