Making tourism an engine for economic development

Bouches-du-Rhône Tourisme is in charge of drawing up the "Schéma Départemental de Développement du Tourisme et des Loisirs" (Local Development Plan for Tourism & Leisure) at the request of the local authorities. 4 Tourism development plans were drawn up and implemented between 1989 et 2016.

The Local Development Plan is a medium-term action plan, designed to make tourism a springboard for the Bouches-du-Rhône's economic development. The Plan consolidates the destination's main assets, develops synergies between the various stakeholders, and supports public and private tourism development initiatives, while preserving the area's identity and integrity. The 5th Local Development Plan will be implemented in 2017. The project pursues to conclusions of the General Assemblies of Provence, aimed at creating "The tourism of tomorrow".
