Introduction

We all are well aware of the fact the travel and tourism industry around the world is one of the most sought after industries in the world and there are all the countries in the world that keep fighting to attain a high position in the market and also in the minds of the people but because of the scale of the operations of the industry, there are many different and complex elements that have to be taken into consideration by any country and in this assignment we will discuss all these elements with reference to Dubai and Papua New Guinea (Solimar International, 2014).

Task 1

1.1 Identify the tourism stakeholders in the chosen country and discuss how the different stakeholders would benefit from planning of tourism developments with reference to the chosen country. (P1.1)

The two destinations that we have picked for the discussions are both that are very popular among the people in the current times since the people are now demanding new and new things from the industry and the world. If the travel and tourism industry of both of these countries put in some extra effort in planning the business, they have a lot of advantages on their side to be able to attain a very high degree of success. Dubai is a country that is one of the developing countries in the world and the kind of grant that they can get from the world organisations is very high and they can use to improve the resources. By doing this they will be benefitting the government of the country to get the desired foreign exchange and the country could use the money for the development of the economy. As far as the Dubai is concerned, developing the tourism will be good for the people since they will encounter business and work opportunities which will help them to have a better standard of living and earn a good livelihood which will help the country to emerge with much need strength (TUI Travel, 2013).

1.2 Discuss how public-private sector partnerships in tourism planning and development would work in the chosen destination emphasising on the advantages and disadvantages of such partnerships. (P1.2)

In every country of the world, there are both public and private sector in the working of the market and the countries that is either developing or emerging can use the funds and the resources of both these sector to have a better degree of success in the country. As far as the country of Dubai is, the partnership of the public and the private sector will be good for the country since the funds of the government can be put to a good use by the private sector and in this manner that can improve the level and the standard of the services that they are offering to the people of the country and also to the people who travel to the country. But since Dubai is an emerging country, the partnership of the public and the private sector will help the country to have more funds which they can use for improving the state of the country, the collaborations will not be useful for the working market of the country but also for the local since they will have more opportunities to work and better jobs which will benefit both the people and the government .The mutual existence of the public and private ensure that the economy is balanced and there is also a remarkable growth in the national income of the country. The public and the private sector together have in the past done a great deal of work for the people of the country and have ensured all the work is done as per high standards. (Bized, 2009).

Task 2

2.1 Outline the key steps of tourism development planning process and analyse the features at different levels such as local authority and national levels using your case study destination. (P2.1)

In the world of travel and tourism industry, the countries are constantly at competition and they have to put in a lot of effort in their working style of they want to break away from the trends that have been running from so many years and the fight is even more complex for the developing and the emerging countries like the Dubai and they have to be very careful about the work they plan their work. There are certain steps that they have to follow and the first and the foremost step happen to be the study of the patterns of the industry and then understand the expectations of the people. The next thing that they have to do is that they have to accumulate their resources and then use those resources to arrange for the right products to offer to the people. The government and the authorities of Dubai will have divide the work between the national and the local authorities so that they can take care of the funds that they have and at the same time make sure that they are rightly used at the ground and reality level (Sheng, 2011).

2.2 Explain interactive planning and evaluate the significance of interactive planning systems and processes in tourism development in the chosen destination. (P2.1)

We all are well aware of the fact the developing and the merging countries like the Dubai have very limited resources that they have use to the best if their ability if they want to succeed and for this purpose they need to have a firm plan in place which includes their study of the market and the proper allotment of their resource. There are many different advantages that will be there for the government of the countries like Dubai of they have proper and firm planning.  They can use the planning to first understand the position of the country in the world and the amount of resources that they are ready to invest in the development of the travel and tourism industry. This step and proper planning will make sure that the countries do not waste their precious and limited resources in the hit and trial method and whatever investment they make gives them good results for the future. It will also help the government of the countries to plan ahead for the future and for the lives of the people of the country and make a position in the market (Reymarie, 2013).

2.3 Explain tourism impacts and evaluate a range of methods to measure those impacts (consider all three impacts such as economic, social and environmental) (P2.3)

Every operation that is done by the government of the various countries like the Dubai have an impact on many different facts like the economic, social and environmental and the authorities have to make sure that the impact is very positive and the country and the people earn good out of it. As far as the economic factors are concerned, the government of Dubai have to make sure that the investments that they make will give good returns for the country and also that the people get good opportunities for working in the market and earn a good income and livelihood. At the sane they also have to make sure that the work that is being in the travel and the tourism industry do not effect the common life of the people and that the business that they does not offer the social life of the people of both the countries. Dubai are destinations that even have to make sure that all the production that they do not exhaust the natural resources of the country and there is no harmful effect that comes out of it (Lundberg, 2011).

Task 3

3.1 Explain sustainability in tourism development and justify the introduction of the concept in planning for sustainable tourism development in the chosen country. (P3.1)

In the past few decades the level of success that has been attained by the travel and tourism industry around the world has been extra ordinary and the authorities around the world are now concerned that the at the rate at which they are using the resources for the purpose of further development, there will soon be a situation where in all the natural resources of the various countries will be exhausted and there be will be no funds in the hands of the people. This is the reason that they have come up with the idea of sustainable development which is a process that makes sure that all the countries especially like the Dubai have guidelines to use the resources in the right order in order to use the right amount for the present times and then also save some for the future destinations. When we say the term sustainable development of the travel and tourism industry we imply to say that the tourist destinations that are on the top of the charts should not be exhausted and devastated and must be kept maintained so that the place does not lose its essence over a period of time. When a particular destination is visited very often by a large number of people it means that the resources that are there in the destination will be exhausted quickly and the destination will not have anything more to offer to the people of the future destination. In the world of the travel and the tourism industry, the government of the various countries especially the developing and the emerging have to be careful of how they use their resources since they are already limited in a nature and id not used carefully will be exhausted in the near future (Biodiversity, 2006).

3.2 Discuss why sustainability is an issue and analyse the factors that may prevent/hinder sustainable tourism development your chosen country. (P3.2)

In the world today nothing comes easy and every concept that is being introduced in the various industries of the world have to face certain elements that cause hindrance in the implementations of the processes that are there in the market to help the various countries and the companies that operate in them. The process if sustainable development is no exception to the rule and there are many different factors that cause a problem to the government of the countries like the Dubai in following the process of sustainable development. The first and the foremost of them all happens to the demands of the people that never ending in nature and no matter how much the countries are ready to invest it always falls short to satisfy the demands of the people. Other than there is also a factor of the level of competition that goes on in the world today and especially in the travel and tourism industry and this is the reason that the countries that are trying to make it to the top position to have out in extra resources to match up with the leading destinations of the travelling market (Peljan, 2011).

3.3 Identify and analyse the various stage of sustainable tourism development planning with example drawn from the case study destination. (P3.3)

In the world if business, there is nothing that comes to the various organisation and that they have to go and follow certain steps if they want to succeed in achieving the goals that they have set for the future of the company in the market and the level of complexity increases with the increase in the scale of the operations of the industry and if we go as per this statement, the level of complexity in the travel and tourism industry will be very high since the scale of the operation is practically the entire world and there is a very high level of competition that runs constantly at the global level. For the countries like the Dubai, there are certain steps that thy can follow for the right implementation of the sustainable development plan. The first and the foremost happen to have a good assessment of the resources of the country and the demands of the people. Them the next step is to allocate the resources into the various categories and only focus on meeting the necessities and then making an average figure out the time they have until the resources that they have get exhausted (Development for the long term, 2011).

Task 4

4.1 Examine the issues of conflict of interests and evaluate the methods of resolving a conflict of interests to ensure the future wellbeing of a developing tourism destination. Use examples from your case study destination. (P 4.1).

In the market where in there is a high level of competition and complexity there have to be certain conflicts that mat arise during the course of the operations of the countries especially in the travel and tourism industry where the trends of the industry keep on changing at the speed of light and the countries have to be on their toes to keep in line with them. The level and the number of conflicts can be even higher in the countries like the Dubai where the resources are very limited and the demands that have to be met with them are never ending in nature. So in this case the government of the countries need to have a firm plan about the way that they are going to solve the problem. The plan that they should adopt is that they should firm access the situation and figure out all the possible solutions that they can adopt to get out of the conflict and then they evaluate all the methods and select the one in which there is the least amount of investment and the maximum amount of profit in the long run (Hurst, Mauron, 2008).

4.2 Sustainability also means achieving a balance. Analyse the implications of balancing supply and demand in your chosen destination. (P 4.2)

When we talk about the process of sustainable development, the first thing that comes to our mind is that it is about saving the available resources so that they can be used by the future. This happens to be one of the simplest meanings of the process but there is more to it than just that. There is also an aspect of the sustainable development that helps the countries like the Dubai to meet their demands in the best possible manner with the limited resources that they have at their disposal. It helps the countries to balance the demand and the supply needs of the people of the country and also those that travel to their country by the means of the travel and tourism industry. It helps the government of the various countries to understand the level and the degree of demand soft h people and also differentiate between he demands that are necessities and the demands that are luxury and once this is sorted the government of these countries can focus their energies on only meeting the demands that are necessary thus maintaining the balance between demand and supply and having sustainability (Tradingcharts.com, 2012).

4.3 What is meant by Enclave Tourism? Evaluate the moral and ethical issues of developing and promoting enclave tourism with examples. (P 4.3)

In the world today the most common thing that comes in the minds of the people is that the process of change is one this that is sure to happen to in the various industries of the world and the travel and the tourism industry is no exception to the rule. There are many different changes that come in the working of this industry and the various countries especially the ones that are developing and emerging in the global market have to make sure that they keep in line with the changes and the trends that run in the market. In the travel and tourism industry there are many different concepts that are coming up like the eco tourism and the wildlife tourism and slowly that is making their place in the market and also in the minds of the people and one of them happens to be enclave tourism but there re many issues that are associated with it. Enclave tourism is tourism in destinations where tourist activities are planned and congregated in one small geographic area, in order to allow the tourists to experience the entirety of their travel intentions without having to travel far out into remote areas of the host country. The first conflict is that the developing and the emerging countries do not have enough funds to promote it in their country and without that is it difficult to convince the people to change the selection that they have been making (Tourism and More, 2006).

Task 5

5.1 Compare current issues associated with tourism development in your chosen destination and an emerging destination of your choice where the impacts of tourism are different (P 5.1)

In the world of the travel and the tourism industry we have been observing the patterns from some years in the recent times there have been certain changes that are coming and they have the potential to change the trends that have been running in the market since so many years now. The biggest change that is coming up happen to the entry of the developing and the emerging countries like the Dubai and the Papua New Guinea in the global market and the competition that they are giving to the countries that are leading the charts since so many years now. But there are certain issues that are been encountered and that are causing hindrance in the success of these countries in the world and the biggest issue is that of the resources that they are ready to invest in the development of the standard of the services that they want o give to the people who travel to these countries. They do not have much on their hands and sometime it becomes difficult for them to handle the demand soft h people and also the amount of business that they get since they are not very well equipped (Change in tourism, 2007).

5.2 Evaluate, with recommendations, the future development of tourism in both destinations (P5.2)

After analysing every element of the travel and tourism industry, I have to say that there are many different things that have to be handled at the same time by the countries that want to do well in the market and make a place for themselves in the minds of the people. There are many trends of the travel and tourism industry that have been changing in the past few years and there is a very high possibility that they will continue to change in the many more years to come and the biggest change of them all happens to be that the developing countries like the Dubai and the Papua New Guinea are becoming more and more popular but there are some thing that they should to have a even stronger future. They should fist make sure that the resources that they are investing for the services that they are offering should in the terms of the quality and not the quantity. They should also make sure that what they are offering should be different from what is already being offered in some other country and at the same time they have to make sure that the common people are safe (Daily traveller, 2015).



















Conclusion

In this assignment we have discussed the various elements that have a deep impact on the working of the various organisation that operate in the travel and tourism industry and especially in the developing and the emerging countries that have to put up a very strong fight with the leading destinations around the world to attain a position in the market and make a place for themselves in the minds of the people. We have seen that Dubai and Papua New Guinea are two destinations that can do really well in the travel and tourism industry if they work systematically.
