But despite having many prospects, this industry in Bangladesh remains neglected for a long time and the share of Bangladesh in world tourism is very poor. This research mainly highlights the current position of tourism industry, its contribution to the economic development and share of Bangladesh toutism as per SAARC* comparison. The study mainly examines current growth and development of this industry and also examines some limitations and challenges of the said industry. Finally, some policy measures have been included as opined by the respondents (service providing organizations and tourists) to resolve its existing barriers as claimed by the aforesaid respondents. It is hopeful that the findings of this research may be considered by the government policy makers and private sector (investors) while formulating their policies for the future development and expansion of tourism industry in Bangladesh.
