Abstract

Regional policy belongs among important activities leading up to controlling and equalization of negative impacts of regional disparities and to finding endogenous sources for the development of regions. One of the important tools for reducing regional disparities is tourism industry that – with its positive social and economic impact in a region – becomes an important source of the growth of regional GDP, gross value added, and new job opportunities. These facts consequently influence also the growth of net disposable income of households and removing area and regional underdevelopment. The main aim of this article is to describe the development of tourism industry in the Czech Republic from 2000 to 2011 and to project the impacts of the development into the CR NUTS III. The indicators characterizing tourism industry compare the number and the dynamics of change of mass accommodation facilities in the regions of the CR, the number of nights spent and the number of days spent in the regions in the monitored years. The article also deals with the share of tourism industry in the GDP, gross value added in the CR regions and its development in the monitored years.

Keywords: regional policy, regional disparities, tourism industry, tourism industry statistics, regions of the Czech Republic, economic development indicators, endogenous growth factors
