Boosting Local Input into the Supply Chain

Briefing/policy papers

Tourism operations generally source their food, materials, and services from wherever is cheapest, most reliable, most easily accessible, and of assured quality. Often this means from distant large suppliers and not from local small enterprises or from poor entrepreneurs. One important way to develop local business linkages in tourism and to increase the development benefits of tourism is to boost the role of local small enterprises in supplying tourism operations. Given that tourism operations must remain competitive and ensure quality for their customers at all times, how can this be done?
