The Effect of EMU on Tourism
11 Pages Posted: 2 May 2007
This paper estimates the effect of the euro on intra-EMU tourist flows by using a panel dataset of 20 OECD countries over the period 1995-2002. The results reveal that the euro has increased tourism, with an effect of around 6.5%. This is a noticeable impact given the early stage of the EMU analyzed. The robustness checks show that the evidence of a positive impact is quite widespread across EMU destination countries.
