environmental degradation and socioeconomic prosperity.
• Top 10 countries: US, Spain, Japan, France, Australia, Germany, UK, China, Italy and Switzerland.
• The results highlight that high-income economies generally continue to have more favourable conditions for travel and tourism development.

• Economies newly added to TTDI 2024: Algeria, Barbados, Iran, Jamaica, Oman, Uzbekistan, Zimbabwe

India’s Ranking:

• India’s rank has risen to 39th from 54th in 2021, though changes made to the index parameters limit its comparability to earlier years.
• International tourist arrivals are expected to reach pre-pandemic levels by the end of 2024
• India is ranked highest in South Asia and among the lower-middle-income economies.
• India is highly price-competitive (18th) and boasts competitive Air Transport (26th) and Ground & Port (25th) infrastructure.
• India’s strong Natural (6th), Cultural (9th) and Non-Leisure (9th) resources help drive travel, and the country is only one of three to score in the top 10 for all the resource pillars.
