European tourism touched new high in 2017

Published on : Tuesday, February 13, 2018

European tourismIt was an excellent year for European tourism. In 2017, a total of 671 million international tourists visited the continent, which was a growth of eight per cent compared with 2016.

 
This is according to the European Tourism 2017 – Trends & Prospects report from the European Travel Commission (ETC). The report stated that regional expansion was driven by two main factors – economic growth in major markets, and the continuing recovery of markets that had previously seen a slowdown due to security concerns. Nearly every monitored destination saw at least some increase in tourist arrivals, with over half seeing growth of 10 per cent or over.

 
“The uptick in the global economy paves the way to recalibrate European and national policy to support the drivers of tourism growth, promote long-term sustainable development and be a more effective catalyst for job creation in Europe,” remarked ETC Executive Director Eduardo Santander.
