    International tourism industry remains robust with 6% increase in first six months of 2018

     “Tourism data for the first half of 2018 serves as further proof of the sector’s resilience and relentless growth trajectory” said UNWTO Zurab Pololikashvili.

    According to the World Tourism Organization (UNWTO)’s latest barometer, international tourist arrivals grew 6% in the first six months of 2018 after a record year of growth in 2017. All world regions enjoyed robust growth in tourist arrivals in January-June 2018. The increase was fueled by strong demand from major source markets, supported by an upswing in the global economy. It comes after record year-round growth of 7% in 2017.
