|Title:|| ||Tourism and Regional Integration in Southeast Asia
|Date of publication:|| ||May 2013|
"Regional cooperation for the development and promotion of tourism is receiving more political and economic attention, particularly in the context of globalization and regionalization. In the interconnected Southeast Asian region, tourism development has become one of the high-priority development cooperation areas. The state is the main actor or driver in crystallizing regional cooperation and integration, while development partners and the private sector are the key supporters and implementers of the tourism development projects. It is argued that the regionalism-tourism development linkage has mutual and causal relationships, which reinforce each other and move along the same trajectory. The incentives and benefits generated from the tourism industry encourage other economic sectors to develop, which generates a chain of spillover effects.
Learning from Southeast Asian regional cooperation and integration, we can see that tourism is one of the key industries in connecting the region through three dimensions: people, institutions and infrastructure. Tourism cooperation is widespread; regional interest and regional tourism products are becoming common regional public goods. The concept of sovereignty over the tourism sector is relatively much more flexible and negotiable than with other sectors. Integration of tourism products and the connectivity of tourism services and infrastructure are the objectives of regional cooperation on tourism.
Within the discourse of the regionalism-tourism nexus, it is argued that regionalism supports tourism based on the existing high level of political will and commitment, multi-stakeholder partnerships, institutional and regulatory development, sub-regional cooperation framework, tourism’s collective attractiveness, and deterritorialization (time and space compression) through infrastructure connection and cross-border facilitation. On the other hand, tourism promotes regionalism by promoting cooperative culture, development and poverty reduction, identity construction, development of social inclusion and institutions, and the improvement of human connectivity."|
