hey guys!
I was helping someone in translation. I foud the expression " vulnerability of the tourist sector". I thought "tourism sector" is the more accurate term. I googled both terms, and they seem to exist both.
So, is there any native speaker out there to help us know which term is more common? or which is the more familiar term,
kind regards,

Tourism sector refers to a type of business, to an area of a country's economy, that is concerned with providing services to tourists.

Tourist sector refers to a body of people who form part of society or economy.

Either form could work in the meagre context you provided.
