ヨルダンの観光収入が12%減 2011年前半

同じ時期の観光客数は14.2%の落ち込み。ごちゃごちゃ書いてあるが、一番減ったのは、海外在住ヨルダン人の本国帰国で、34%も減った(笑)。

AMMAN - Tourism revenues went down by 12 per cent in the first half of 2011 due to the drop in the number of tourists who visited the Kingdom in this period, official figures released on Monday.

Revenues generated by the sector in the first six months of the year amounted to JD949 million, down from JD1.089 billion in the first half of 2010, according to statistics released by the Ministry of Tourism.

Approximately 3.124 million tourists visited the country in the January-June period, a 14.2 per cent drop compared to the same period last year, when the figure stood at 3.639, according to the ministry's report.

Some 1.754 million overnight tourists visited the country in the first half of the year, down by 14.1 per cent from the same period in 2010, when the figure stood at 2.043 million.

The report indicated that the drop in the number of tourists in the first six months of 2011 was due to the turmoil in the region, which led to hundreds of cancellations by potential tourists.

It showed that the number of visitors coming from both Europe and the Gulf countries went down by 12 per cent; American tourists by 10 per cent, and visitors from non-Gulf Arab countries by 5 per cent.

According to the report, the period also witnessed a 34 per cent decline in the number of Jordanian expatriates visiting the country.

Minister of Tourism Haifa Abu Ghazaleh said the current month is witnessing a change, with thousands of Gulf tourists visiting the country.

She said that more than 40,000 individuals visited Jordan last week and "this number is expected to rise in the upcoming days, with many coming to attend Jerash Festival activities".
