''The impact of governance quality on inbound tourism demand of Central Asia''
( 2022, Vol. 42 No.2 )
This study analyzes the effect of governance quality on international tourist arrival to Central Asia from 108 countries of origin over the period 2000-2018 using the gravity model. The findings show that governance quality highly impacts the behaviour of tourist arrivals. A peaceful political environment in Central Asia could lead to an increase in the volume of tourism flows. Surprisingly, the findings reveal that improving the quality of governance and institutions will not provide a swift increase in the number of tourist arrivals to Central Asia in the short term. Policymakers should take actions to improve governance quality and achieve to increase significantly international tourist arrivals.
Keywords: World Governance Indicators, tourism demand, panel data, gravity model, Central Asia
