The TSA Report measures Tourism's direct contribution to Papua New Guinea's GDP
17 January 2022
PNG Tourism Promotion Authority (TPA) in partnership with the National Statistical Office (NSO) successfully completed and released the first Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) report for Papua New Guinea.
Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) is the standard United Nations (UN), approved method of measuring the direct contribution of tourism consumption to a national economy. TPA, with the technical support from NSO and external TSA experts has successfully completed the project on time.
Tourism will now be measured in the official economic statistics as the first TSA identifies tourism’s direct contribution to the GDP and compare with other economic sectors in the country.
The successful implementation of the first TSA comes after TPA and NSO officially signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) earlier in 2021 to share data and develop the first TSA for Papua New Guinea.
This first TSA was developed with the available data and it will provide a good baseline to produce the next TSA, going forward.
