Booming of Swedish Tourism Industry
The improvement of Sweden's economy resulted to the return of many American tourists to their country; on the other hand Chinese visitors were not prioritized by tourism promoters.
Last year Swedish tourism improved. Compared to other European countries which had declined visitor numbers, Sweden experienced a rise of foreign tourists in spite of having economic downturn and financial predicament.
Sweden's annual political week held in the island of Gotland was said to be a tourism industry that is now one of the most important industries in the country. It is where more people are being employed. It's three times larger than the auto industry.
The Sweden tourism requires massive labor and man power, thus, boosting their employment rate. This gives more jobs to the locales adding up to their revenues. This is also a good representation that their economy is doing great.
That is why countries neighboring Sweden top the list of incoming visitors, with Norway as number one, followed by Germany, Denmark and the Netherlands.
According to Visit Sweden, a state funded organization that promotes the brand of Sweden and Swedish destinations internationally, the numbers of American tourists are likely to spring back this year. This is despite the decline of the number of tourist from United States.
Many tourists from US are eager to travel again in Sweden in spite of the financial predicaments faced by the US.
China is considered as one of the world economy's new engine, but the rising Chinese market is not prioritized by Visit Sweden. Annually around 31 million Chinese goes abroad, but only 6% goes to Europe.
Visitors from Latin countries like Spain, Italy, Russia and France are the best markets to entice to come and visit Sweden.
No matter the extent of the global crisis, Sweden has extensively been putting hard work in order to keep up with times.
