Cuba tourism revenues go up
Big News Network.com (IANS)
Wednesday 10th August, 2011

Cuba's revenues from tourism jumped 13 percent in the first half of the
year compared with the same period in 2010, authorities said.

According to the National Statistics Office, or ONE, figures, total
income from Cuba's tourism sector between January-July amounted to
$990,464, while in 2010 it was $874,513.

Profits are being reported this year in such areas as hotels, retail
sales, gastronomy and transport, and losses in others such as recreation.

Official data indicates that more than 1.5 million foreign tourists
visited Cuba in the first six months of the year, an increase of 10.6
percent over last year.

Canada headed the list of the leading sources of tourists to the island,
followed by Britain, Italy, France and Spain, while Argentina remains
the island's most important and fastest growing market in Latin America.

Tourism, the second largest contributor to the nation's economy after
technical and professional services, last year earned $2.1 billion from
the visits of some 2.5 million tourists.

This year Cuba will welcome 2.7 million tourists, above all from Canada
and Europe, according to tourism ministry estimates.
