    Europe Bets On Tourism To Spark Economic Rebound:)

    Tourists could help steer Europe out of economic turmoil as the European Union works on plans for more support to the tourism industry -- as well as attracting more visitors.
    Europe is the number one destination for international travellers, led by tourist hotspots Spain, France, Italy, Germany and Britain. The EU is working on ways to bolster the sector, which it estimates contributes more than EUR€500 billion (USD$721 billion) to the EU's gross domestic product.
    That amount doubles when related industries such as transport, culture and construction are included.
