    Addition of piece of information

    Hello everyone.
    I have the folowing sentence: As well as / Along with bringing much-needed money to developing countries, tourism provides employment for the local population. Which of two phrases ('as well as' or 'along with') is better in the context of this sentence?

    My preference is 'As well as', though 'Along with' is not wrong.

    You could use the Edit Post button to correct the misspelt fololowing and toursim.

    Re: Addition of piece of information

    I think 'In addition to' can also be used, but I don't know whether it is better or worse.

    Not a teacher.

    Re: Addition of piece of information

    Yes, it can. It means the same as 'As well as'.
