Southeast Asia – Regional Report
This regional report has been prepared as a contribution to the Global Study on the Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism conducted by ECPAT International in collaboration with numerous partners. Southeast Asia welcomed a record 96.6 million international visitors in 2014 and was identified as the fastest growing region for tourism in the world. The current and forecast exponential growth in tourism arrivals and receipts represents a veritable boom for all eleven countries within the region. However, the negative impacts of this growth should not be overlooked.
