Swiss based NGO finds Switzerland the most attractive environment for tourism

Or more accurately for developing it, as the World Economic Forum boys andf girls in Davos have decided. It has measured 'the factors and policies that make it attractive to develop the T&T sector in different countries', and in wonk world environmental regulation and human capital go into the mix along with natural & cultural resources and national tourism perception.

Our yodelling chums top the list, followed by Austria, Germany, Icleand, the US and Honkers. We make #10, and are bettered by that dream destination Luxembourg, but outperform France, Spain and Oz inter alia. The quoted wonk pleads 'Our study is not a ‘beauty contest’, or a statement about the attractiveness of a country. On the contrary, we aim to measure the factors that make it attractive to develop the travel and tourism industry of individual countries', but must no full well that the report will not be treated thus, especially given that it includes indicators like natural & cultural resources and national tourism perception.

Elsewhere, Taiwan outguns Italy and Korea Thailand. If you want to avoid wonks, head to Angola, Burundi and Chad. Among places not ranked are Iran, Iraq and Somalia.

It's really just one of those quality of life/index of economic freedom surveys rehashed, with a bit of 'nice mountains' and spot of vague 'perception' thrown in. As you say though, it will be used for different purposes.
Anyway, I'm off to have lunch with a chap who looks after some of my money here in Geneva - I'll tell him to invest in new hotels in Zermatt.

Indeed he was, when he could get a word in edgeways. I thought Very British Dude was sound, if given to epic meanders.
