SpainThe first half of 2017 witnessed massive rise in Spanish tourism. Spain has successfully created another record year in tourism by greeting almost 36.3 million tourists which accounts an 11.6% increase from 2016, as per the survey of the Tourist Movement on Borders (Frontur) released by the National Statistics Institute.

The numbers are in line with the “Trips and Tourism Competitiveness Index 2017” from the World Economic Forum. Spain is at the top spot in world tourism as per competitiveness, running successively in the second year. The report that comes out every two years emphasizes Spain’s joint initiation in terms of its cultural and natural resources along with powerful tourism services infrastructure. There are altogether 136 countries included in the report.

Regardless of the ambiguity created by Brexit, the UK continued being Spain’s one of the leading sources in terms of tourists, registering a 9.1% year-on-year rise with over 8.6 million visitors. Germany occupied the second position, sending 5.5 million overseas visitors, up 9.6% from 2016, while France posted a 4.9% increase with 4.7 million.

However, ACF analysts explain that the figures of the first half of 2017 are positive, reflecting the power of the Spanish tourism sector in comparison to other European markets.
