Argentina welcomes sustainable tourism with open arms

Published on : Monday, November 12, 2018

Delegates from the Secretariat of State for Tourism in Argentina visited London’s World Travel Market event this week, unveiling the execution of a new development strategy to perk up sustainable eco-tourism and develop flight connectivity in the country.

 

In 2017, Argentina was recorded seven million tourist arrivals and has hatched strategies to greet nine million by 2020. Eighty investment projects are proposed over 2019, which is expected will bring in millions of dollars; besides, US$232 million is expected to be invested in national architectural and urban renovation schemes.

 

The country is all prepared to grow flight connectivity by revamping its important airports; in other to support more than 1,000 new national routes (it has already increased international flights by a factor of 20 per cent since 2015). Also, plans are afoot to further promote 46 national protected areas in Argentina of which four are UNESCO World Heritage sites.

 

“We are delighted to be in London this week to partake in WTM and announce that Argentina is open for business, for investment, for tourism and for growth,” said Sebastián Slobayen. “We understand that visitors today seek a greater sense of community, and care about the countries they visit. This is why we have launched a new sustainable plan to preserve our country and benefit the quality of life of local communities. Our country is our main asset, we wish to protect it, invest in it – and above all – share it.”
