To secure a sustainable future for both developed and developing countries, a group of global leaders came together to settle on a list of 17 objectives that would be known as the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) in 2015. These goals aim to achieve a worldwide balance between economic, social, and ecological progress. Initially, the United Nations connected tourism to only three Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), tourism has the potential - albeit frequently untapped - to contribute to the complete set of goals. Until now, the relationship between sustainable development and tourism is viewed as equivocal - tourism is a sector defined by a significant reliance on foreign investment and international tourists, with a spotty history of negative repercussions and disputes. This study examines Sustainable Development Goal 8 "Decent Work and Economic Growth" from the standpoint of robust sustainability and identifies the connection between tourism development and SDG 8. This article examines the relationship between Sustainable Development Goal 8 and tourism, providing an overview of the current condition of tourism for growth within Southeast Asia, particularly at a time when the area – and the sector as a whole – have been significantly impacted.
