Tourism Overview

Latest data for January-May 2011 show a favourable 7.3% increase in tourist arrivals, compared with the same five-month period in the previous year. Growth in the number of visitors from Europe was the weakest of all the source regions, at just 2.9% year-on-year (y-o-y). Arrivals from the key source market, Africa, were up a relatively strong 10.4% y-o-y. The strongest growth in visitors was from Asia, up a buoyant 26% y-o-y, although the region only accounted for just over 3% of total arrivals. In Europe, the key markets of the UK and Germany recorded very mixed fortunes, with growth of -3% and +17.5% y-oy respectively. Meanwhile, visitors from India were up a solid 42% y-o-y and arrivals from China increased 23%, although absolute numbers are relatively low (a total of some 64,000 tourists for both countries over January/May).
