29 2 Tourism as 'development' While proponents of mass tourism talk up the alleged positive impacts, others question whether a concept of ‘development’ as increased industrialization is relevant, desirable or possible. THE WORLD TRAVEL and Tourism Council (WTTC) describes itself as ‘the forum for global business leaders comprising the presidents, chairs and CEOs of 100 of the world’s foremost travel and tourism (T&T) companies’. It believes that T&T can ‘help raise living standards and alleviate poverty in undeveloped areas’.
However, according to Tourism Concern, although the sector is the biggest source of income UN statistics show that 30 per cent of Maldivian children under the age of five suffer from malnutrition – similar to sub-Saharan Africa. Fresh fruit and vegetables tend to go directly to the resort islands, bypassing local people on other islands. Conflict of interest While the big operators see no conflict of interest between their desire to maximize profits for shareholders and ‘alleviate poverty’, the reality is apparent when protestors oppose tourist development projects.
