Key insights from PATAmPOWER

Chinese Taipei receives a major boost in IVAs from Southeast Asia


 
Chinese Taipei boosts its collective percentage increase in international visitor arrivals (IVAs) from Southeast Asia, from 16 percent in 2016 to 29.2 percent in 2017, thanks largely to significant growth of arrivals from the Philippines (+68.6%) and Thailand (+49.5%). With a solid year-on-year growth of 11 percent, Malaysia remains the number one source market occupying 24.7 percent of share contribution of IVAs from Southeast Asia to Chinese Taipei in that period.
