Rajasthan is a main tourism State in the nation. It’s glorious legacy, bright living customs, traditions, wonderful heritage, mesmerizing natural beauty,vibrant folk, energetic people and delicious cuisines are exceptional attractions for both, domestic and foreign tourists.

The substantial and indescribable tourism products of the State offer enormous potential for development of the tourism industry. Improvement of tourism assets and expanding both, domestic and international tourists’ arrivals is a high need for the State especially for the important regions like Hadauti and Shekhawati. Lack of educational programs, awareness, promotion are few reasons that the regions are not able to attract the tourists towards them. In fact the tourists who are visiting Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur, Pushkar etc. tourist places of Rajasthan are even not aware about the hidden treasures of Hadauti and Shekhawati regions. Moreover it the regions are facing the problems related with falling prices of agricultural, economical instability, poor infrastructure, lack of resources, unemployment, lack of entrepreneurship etc. In these situations it becomes more important to focus on the resource in which the regions are rich and distinct from other regions of the State. There is no doubt into the potential of tourism at Hadauti and Shekhawati regions. Tourism knowledge of these regions if provided in a learning methodology and strategically planned way these regions will make a benchmark on the State tourism.

Opinions on the Aspects Affecting the Performance of Romanian Tourism

I have taken this theme into discussion, because I consider if of great actuality. Thus, though it is unanimously admitted the fact that the Romanian tourism is a branch of the national economy with a huge potential, and, at official level, it is considered to be a priority domain, its performance is not satisfactory yet. Therefore, I consider it very important to identify the most relevant aspects related to the deficiencies still existing in the system and the causes generating them.

In this regard, my approach aims both at the domestic environment, which is very dynamic and where the tourist activities take place, and also at the extremely strong influence of the foreign environment, materialized by the intensification of the globalization process.

Impact Of Information Organization On Performance In Tourism

The unprecedented development of communication, transportation media and infrastructure, as well as the increase of the number and diversity of offers, within the context of growth of incomes of certain social categories, have facilitated during the last few years a significant increase of demand in the touring industry which therefore occupies a more and more important place in the national economy, but also in the world economy.

However, a closer look shows us that the overview of tourism at the national, regional and global level presents progressively stronger characteristics in terms of: general condition of locations, provided facilities, degree of accessibility, level of costs, quality and diversity of the provided services, used technologies, potential risks etc. Therefore, the growth of performance in tourism depends more and more on obtaining, organization of strongly
substantiated basis of information and their exploitation to a maximum level of efficiency.

Starting from these considerations, our endeavor aims at making an (non-exhaustive) analysis of the elements allowing increasing of efficiency of information use in the increase of performance in tourism.
