Central America looks for more foreign tourists at FITA 2010 event

Wednesday, September 29, 2010

FITA 2010 was organized to support travel industry professionals across the globe, and to promote Mexico City as a destination for international and domestic tourists.

Thirty thousand visitors attended the four-day event, which ended Sept. 26.

After tourism to Central America fell in 2009 by 6 percent, 2010 is on track to see healthy growth.

During the first six months of 2010, international tourist arrivals in Central America increased 9 percent.

Guatemala is a growing destination for Mexicans, and Panama’s Tourism Authority said the four-day event produced good contacts for a number of private businesses based in Panama.
