Domestic Tourism Data Collection Methodologies: Recommendations for Papua New Guinea

about psdi

This study aims to explore the potential for domestic tourism in Papua New Guinea (PNG). This initiative responds to national government approaches for assistance in ascertaining baseline understandings of the extent to which domestic tourism has scope for development. Observations of domestic travel during the period of PNG’s coronavirus disease (COVID-19) border closures hinted that domestic tourism was worth a closer inspection. Accordingly, the Pacific Private Sector Development Initiative (PSDI) commissioned this study to investigate recommendations for suitable methodologies to measure domestic tourism, noting specific requirements for data collection.
