Abstract

The study aims to review tourism and economic growth in developing countries. The paper systematically reviews the literature on tourism and economic growth from 2004 to 2019. The Scopus database has been selected for the literature search to make the process transparent. The literature search was based on the keywords of tourism and economic growth, and the PRISMA 2009 helped the selection and exclusion process. The final 40 articles in the excel sheet with at least one citation for the review have been used in the literature classification to find the gap and directions of tourism and economic growth. The results revealed that literature on multiple country studies face difficulties in finding a specific relationship than single-country studies, and most studies have only focused on the relationships but missed the growth strategies. The present systematic review recommends the future research should focus on multiple country studies and growth strategies.
