An information service from Tourism Industries
US Boasts Travel Trade Surplus for First Quarter 2001!
Overseas travel also remained steady with 5.5 million visitors arriving in the first quarter of 2001 with expenditures of $18.5 million. Western European arrivals declined 5 percent this quarter, totaling almost 2.2 million visitors. Most of the decline was in pleasure travel (7 percent) while business visas were up 2 percent. Spending by Western European visitors totaled $6.8 billion for the first quarter 2001, down 6 percent from first quarter last year. Arrivals from the Pacific region grew faster (4 percent) this quarter as compared to the same quarter last year. South American arrivals were also up slightly, 3 percent, compared to the same period last year. Both pleasure and business travel from Asia and South America were up for this quarter. Positive increases in other regions such as Central America (up 5 percent), Africa (up 4 percent), and the Middle East (up 7 percent) also helped the overall stability of the overseas markets.
With this announcement, TI has released its most in-depth analysis for
the first quarter of 2001 http://tinet.ita.doc.gov/tinews/archive/2001_q1.html.
TI has also, for the first time, combined with DRI-WEFA, an economic consulting
firm, to offer insights on the economic situation for numerous inbound
markets in the U.S. We hope the combined information increases the usefulness
of this analysis for the industry. Arrivals by month for all world regions
