phillipines-tourism-playersLooking to boost tourism ties with the Philippines, Argentina is endeavouring to forge a long-term partnership with tourism players in the country.

 

The potential growth of tourist arrivals in both countries is being hampered by both lack of both awareness and direct flights. Therefore, according to the Philippine

 

Travel Agencies Association (PTAA), Argentine Embassy Commercial Attaché Martin Soto has expressed interest to tap the group to help introduce Argentina to the Philippine market.

 

“Basically, our job is to increase awareness about Argentina as a tourism destination. We are an emerging destination. Here in the Philippines, there is not much knowledge about our country,” Soto was quoted in a statement as saying.

 

PTAA president Maria Michelle Reyes-Victoria said they see potential areas for cooperation with Argentina in tourism.

 

“Argentina is very much an untapped market for our member travel agencies. The Philippines has a growing middle-class that has the capacity to travel not just domestically but also abroad on multiple occasions every year,” Victoria said.

 

Victoria said the PTAA would consult with airlines and the Philippine government for direct flights not just to Argentina but to other countries in South America.
