Key insights from PATAmPOWER

Visitor arrivals to Sri Lanka slowed down in 3Q2017


 
During 3Q2017, Sri Lanka tourism witnessed a slight decrease of inbound visitor arrivals with 0.5 percent drop compared to the same period last year. This is primarily resulted from the decline from key source markets such as China (-7.9%), Germany (-8.7%), the Russian Federation (-43.0%) and Maldives (-21.2%). However, the destination enjoyed impressive growth from Indian arrivals with an increase of 19.4 percent during this period.

How Travel & Tourism Benefits From Peace – A Statistical Analysis of the Asian Experience - available at PATA Store



With simple statistics and short historical perspectives, this PATA paper strives to establish the well-known link between peace and tourism. As PATA CEO Dr. Mario Hardy stated, “If peace prevails, tourism can flourish. Tourism helps economies to grow; it reduces the disparity between social classes; it alleviates poverty and, importantly, it provides an opportunity for people to develop a better understanding of each other. With this report we want to show in simple numbers the positive benefits that travel and tourism can bring to a destination. We want to give a sense of hope to those who are still affected by conflict and show them the path to a better future. We can learn from our past and improve our future. We hope that this report helps readers to better understand the benefits that tourism can bring to our world.”
