The problem of tourism development is seen as a problem of choice, first of all goals, then actions that will be taken to achieve those goals and finally the instruments of action on the behavior of participants. Every social choice depends on the criteria of those social groups that are in a position to choose. The selection criteria are not static. Therefore, the tourism development strategy should be viewed as a method of selecting optimal development paths according to the given selection criteria - usefulness and efficiency. Because of that, it should always be borne in mind that the development strategy consists of procedures, methods and ways of realizing the established concept and the production orientations harmonized with it.
