- Tourism, a very important industry for the improvement of economic and people’s living standards of countries and regions, is extremely impressionable by external factors, from economic crises to public health incidents. Therefore, it is overly important to study the changing trend of tourism and economy under the influence of external factors. This study aims to extend our understanding of the relationship between tourism growth and economic development under public health incident (COVID-19) by Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, Keynes’s consumption theory and the consumption-savings life cycle model. Meanwhile, this study also uses Macau as a case study to conduct a specific analysis and propose further research directions and management opinions for scholars and managers. Furthermore, this study reveals that there is bidirectional relationship between tourism growth and economic development under sudden public health incident (COVID-19).
