Report: Mexico to Break Record on Foreign Arrivals, Minister Says

According to BusinessWeek.com, Mexico expects to set a record this year with at least 24.6 million foreign tourist visits, Tourism Secretary Gloria Guevara said.

Foreigners’ arrivals should increase by more than 5 percent from the 23.4 million visits received in 2011, Guevara said July 6 in an interview at Bloomberg’s Mexico City offices.

International tourism is the fifth-largest source of foreign revenue, the Mexican Mining Chamber said in a May report. Guevara said last year that Mexico expected 50 million tourist arrivals and $40 billion in income from the industry in 2018.
