News in RSS

International tourism arrivals have returned rapidly to steady growth, showing tourism’s resilience to the effects of the global economic and financial crisis, according to a new OECD report.



In 2010, total international arrivals in all countries reached 940 million, 6.7% above the 2009 figure, with most growth taking place in Asia and the Pacific. Overall, international arrivals increased by 4% to OECD countries and 2.7% to the EU.

The report notes that tourism represents a significant share of the service economy of OECD and EU members, accounting for up to a third of service exports and up to 10% of GDP.
