The importance of tourism policy planning stated by European Commission (2007) in the Lisbon Treaty of 2007 has a focus on the two axes specified in the article 176 B of the same Treaty, where it is explained that sectorial business development and exchange of best practices, are necessary elements of the tourism sector. The mention of the need for tourism policy planning in the Treaty of Lisbon of 2007 mentioned by European Commission (2007), shows a start in European governments to develop future and appropriate strategies towards an improvement of tourism development. Moreover, if we understand the importance that tourism policy planning represents for European Union countries, Norway and in the case of the present master thesis analysis Stavanger planners, must consider the needs and benefits may represent for Stavanger. Also to be understood is the need and importance of a governmental support for Norway and Stavanger to develop its tourism, and in fact to offer an alternative to economic development rather than oil and gas dependence.
