Despite terror threats, Europe still a top choice for travelers

algarve EuropeAlthough Europe has been plagued by terror attacks in recent times, its appeal hasn’t decreased for international visitors. In a new study by the World Economic Forum (WEF), European economies dominated the top-10 rankings, with Spain leading the chart. It indicated that Europe was well placed to attract foreign visitors and create jobs.

 
France took the second place, followed by Germany, while the U.K. placed fifth, Italy ranked eighth and Switzerland was tenth. To quote WEF, “Despite increased fear of terrorism, tourism performance of countries such as France and Germany have not declined significantly, confirming a strong resilience of the tourism sector to security shocks in the presence of strong institutions and sound fundamentals.”

 
In spite of separate incidents in places like France, London or Belgium, the excellent tourism service infrastructure, strong health conditions, international openness and general sense of perceived safety of Europe have diminished terror and security concerns.

 
The WEF said that Europe remains the world’s largest travel and tourism market, having attracted 620 million of the 1.2 billion international visitors in 2016, followed by Asia-Pacific.
