International Tourism Vs. Slowing Trends – Miami Guide

During a time of sky-rocketing food and oil prices and global warming, pressure is leaving households on a budget. However, despite the trend in the economy, international tourism actually grew year-on-year by about 5% by April of 2008 according to the United Nations World Tourism Organization. UNWTO is releasing a prediction in their bi-annual World Tourism Barometer next week that the withstanding growth will continue to increase through 2008. A weakened economy and built-up desire left over since the 9/11 security increase seems to have converted into a travel boom

All tourist destinations have profited from the tourism increase in 2008, although it happened faster for North America due to the weaker dollar. On the other hand, everything evolved more slowly in Europe because of a stronger euro. The top three travel destinations benefited rank in the following order:

1. Middle East
2. Asia
3. Latin America

Egypt, Morocco, China, South Korea, Cambodia, Nepal, El Salvador, Peru, Sweden, Latvia, Montenegro and Israel all underwent double digit growth rates.

Although they can not perform any miracles for Global Warming, UNTWO believes that tourism can help the economies current financial state as it balances payments and promotes the work of farmers, fishers, handcrafters and those in the hospitality industry.
