Central America looks for more foreign tourists at FITA 2010 event
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.
