This project, lead by the UQ Tourism Workforce Development Team, in partnership with EarthCheck, the world’s leading scientific benchmarking, certification and advisory group for travel and tourism, aims to develop a commercial Tourism Labour Barometer. The tool’s potential markets are governments, business and related organisations across the Asia-Pacific region, with a view to assist them in tracking, mapping and forecasting tourism workforce trends to support the sustainable development and long-term growth of the industry. While several similar tools exist in other regions (e.g. the European Skills Barometer), there is no such product in the Asia-Pacific.

AIBE has provided support to develop a prototype tool and conduct workshops for the researchers and partners.
