Asia leads global tourism rebound

THE FIRST half of 2010 saw international tourist arrivals increase by seven per cent, according to the August Interim Update of the UNWTO World Tourism Barometer, with Asia-Pacific (14 per cent) and the Middle East (20 per cent) driving the growth.

Currently the second most-visited region in the world, Asia had strong results from Sri Lanka (49 per cent), Japan (36 per cent), Vietnam (35 per cent), Myanmar (35 per cent), Hong Kong (23 per cent), Macau (23 per cent), Singapore (23 per cent), Fiji (22 per cent) and the Maldives (21 per cent). Even Thailand recorded a positive growth (14 per cent) despite its political unrest earlier this year.

The UNWTO has maintained its initial growth forecast of three to four per cent for this year. However, current growth rates, coupled with an improving global economic environment, suggest that year-end results are likely to be closer to four per cent, and may even exceed this figure.
