International tourism to continue robust growth in 2013, after a +4% growth in 2012 to reach 1.035 billion

International tourism to continue robust growth in 2013, after a +4% growth in 2012 to reach 1.035 billion | I Love Travel | Scoop.it

With an additional 39 million international tourists, up from 996 million in 2011, international tourist arrivals surpassed 1 billion (1.035 billion) for the first time in history in 2012. Demand held well throughout the year, with a stronger than expected fourth quarter.

By region, Asia and the Pacific (+7%) was the best performer, while by sub-region South-East Asia, North Africa (both at +9%) and Central and Eastern Europe (+8%) topped the ranking.

UNWTO forecasts international tourist arrivals to increase by 3% to 4% in 2013, much in line with its long term forecast for 2030: +3.8% a year on average between 2010 and 2020.

By region, prospects for 2013 are stronger for Asia and the Pacific (+5% to +6%), followed by Africa (+4% to +6%), the Americas (+3% to +4%), Europe (+2% to +3%) and the Middle East (0% to +5%)

Interesting numbers. Should we be looking closer at Africa already?

Anne Bosworth's curator insight, January 30, 2013 4:57 AM

I wonder if anyone feels as I do...like maybe they should hurry & get their traveling in before the world starts becoming more difficult & dangerous.
