Impact of tourism infrastructure on regional development: example of the implantation of a Center Parcs resort in northern France (Aisne)

Abstract : This work assesses the impact of the forthcoming implantation of a major recreational resort (670 new direct jobs planned) on the local economy of an isolated rural area in northern France. To estimate the induced effects, an original hybrid model combining Keynesian and economic base theory was used to take into account the predominant role of the first wave of spending in the tourism sector. At the local level, this resort has the potential to create at least between 70 and 80 indirect and induced jobs, provided support is lent by synergy in local policy making (especially in training and habitat).
