Europe's tourism recovering at slowest pace
from 07.09.2010 15:57       Author - Tourist Media
World Tourism Organization (WTO) announced a seven percent growth in world tourism figures for the first six months of 2010, WTO reports show.

Asia and the Middle East are the regions that registered biggest growth. All destinations marked growth, though WTO reports show that Europe's recovery is slowest.

Despite the increase in comparison to 2009 figures, international tourism is still unable to reach 2008 figures. According to July data, the growth will continue at a steady pace.

The Middle East registered 20 percent increase in international tourism arrivals. Asia and the Pacific also show positive result of 14 percent increase in comparison to 2009 statistics.

Africa, North and South America registered seven percent increase in arrivals.

Europe recovery is quite modest.  For the first six months of 2010, the continent has two percent increase, but results from recent months are slightly better, WTO reported. The recent volcano eruption in Iceland seriously interfered with tourism figures growth in Europe. Western and Southern Mediterranean Europe show reasonable growth.

WTO registered 421 million international tourist arrivals during the first six months of 2010.
