UNWTO World Tourism Barometer: World tourist arrivals – from 800 million to 900 millon in two years

In 2007, international tourist arrivals grew by an estimated 6% to reach a new record figure of nearly 900 million – an astonishing achievement given that the 800 million mark was only reached two years earlier. This represents nearly 52 million more arrivals than in 2006, well over the total count for either the Middle East or Africa. In fact, world tourism enjoyed its fourth consecutive year of growth in 2007 above the long-term forecast of 4.1% and, surprisingly, it even exceeded the 5.5% increases recorded in 2005 and 2006.
