Abstract

Many studies have shown the importance of tourism industry in enhancing trade performance and economic development. This study examines the hypothesis of ‘economic-driven’ tourism growth in Malaysia by using econometric modelling. To generate the empirical analysis, this study used data from 1980-2007 to analyze the economic-driven tourism growth by using vector autoregressive (VAR) estimation. The long-run relationship between specific variables is considered using the Johansen and Juselius cointegration analysis. Finally, Granger-causality results implies causal relationship of economic-driven tourism growth in Malaysia. Therefore, this study suggests policies and strategies to overcome the importance of economic-driven tourism in Malaysia in the future.
