Spain is aiming a record year of tourist arrivals

Published on : Friday, November 22, 2019

Spain is aiming a record year of tourist arrivals, the seventh straight year of new highs, with U.S. and Asian visitors making up for the trouble caused by Brexit and collapse of Thomas Cook, said the industry minister.

 

Spain is the world’s second-most visited country after France, and tourism comprises the backbone of the domestic economy, contributing nearly 12% of national gross domestic product.

 

In the first eight months of the year, the number of international tourists to Spain went up by 1.3% to 67.1 million, said Industry Minister Reyes Maroto.

 

Increasing tourism from the US and Asia has helped balance a fall in arrivals from the countries that traditionally favor Spain, the minister said.

 

Spain is expected to end the year with a 0.7% increase in the number of international tourists, Maroto estimated, which would set a new record of 83.4 million visitors.
