Winter Season to Boost Tourism

50

Thursday 8th November, 2018-With the tourism sector recording a seven percent growth when compared with the same period last year, tourism officials are confident there will be a further boost with the 2018 winter season, resulting in overall strong year for the industry.

Speaking at the recent World Travel Market in London, CEO of the Antigua and Barbuda Tourism Authority Colin James says the North American market will significantly contribute to the projected growth.

As it relates to the European market, the numbers are favourable according to James, but with an exit from the European Union by the UK imminent, the response there has been mixed.
