Discusses the importance of tourism as the largest generator of wealth and employment in the world and the fact that, despite the clear evidence of tourism importance in economic and social terms and its undeniable perspectives of growth along the next two decades, it has registered great difficulties in obtaining its legal political recognition within the European Union.
