WTO: Tourism sector to recover in 2010

04 October 2009

The World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) has said that the global tourism industry is over the worst and recovery in 2010 seems likely. Although the decline in the Middle East is significant (-13%), this is the only region, apart from Africa, which has posted positive results in June and July this year. Arrivals are still well above the 2007 level as the current decline follows two very strong growth years. Also in the Middle East various destinations bucked the overall trend and report noteworthy growth rates, including Bahrain, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.
