Mexico accounts 28.1 pc growth in International tourism for 2021

MEXICO CITY : According to early estimates given by the Ministry of Tourism, Mexico will welcome 31 million international tourists in 2021, a 28.1 percent increase over the previous year.

Minister of Tourism Miguel Torruco stated in a statement on Friday that Mexico's tourism sector is in "good recovery," noting that 24.2 million international passengers visited the country in 2020, down 46.1 percent from 2019.

According to Ministry projections, foreign exchange receipts from international visitors totaled $18.428 billion in 2021, up 67.6 from 2020. In addition, according to studies, average yearly hotel occupancy was 45.9, up 19.9 from 2020, when the sector's activity dropped owing to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Traveler confidence has improved, according to Torruco, as a result of the use of Covid-19 vaccinations in many regions and countries. By 2021, the tourist sector's GDP would account for 7.1 percent of the overall economy, and by 2022, the figure is likely to rise to at least 8.3 percent, he said.

According to government predictions, the Mexican economy could return by up to 6 in 2021, after dropping by 8.2 in 2020.
