    Israel ranks among least price competitive tourist spots worldwide

    A decade ago, Israel was positioned much higher in the rankings: 32nd globally.

    The Travel & Tourism Competitive Index measures "The set of factors and policies that enable the sustainable development of the Travel & Tourism sector," explains the WEF. Its rankings are built from four sub-indexes, 14 pillars and 90 individual indicators distributed among the pillars.

    While the business environment in Israel improved, lifting the country 19 notches to 32nd place in 2017, when it comes to security, Israel ranks poorly.

    Israel also does not do well in price competitiveness: It sits at the bottom of the list in 133rd place, after Iceland and followed only by Barbados, England and Switzerland.

    In 2007, Israel had ranked 78th in price competitiveness.

    Regarding hygiene, Israel ranked 39th, down from 7th a decade ago, in 2007.

    In natural resources, Israel dropped from 27th place 10 years ago to 93rd, thanks to unimpressive maintenance of precious natural spots such as Mitzpeh Ramon, the Dead Sea and the Sea of Galilee.
