    Is it correct to say THE tourism industry? Or should I omit an article?

    It's probably correct to include the article, but with a full sentence would let us know for sure.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    There are quite a few problems with that sentence. Can you see what they might be?
