Brazilian Tourism Breaks Four Records This Year, Including Foreign Funds

    Brazil Tourism

    Brazil Tourism Brazil's tourism ended the first four months of 2007 with four record figures: the number of domestic arrivals on regular flights (commercial), the total of domestic arrivals (on commercial and chartered flights), the volume of foreign funds (foreigner's expenses in the country) and the tourist bilateral trade (sector expenses plus revenues).

    This information is included in the 14th Tourism Economic Performance Bulletin, published by GetΓΊlio Vargas Foundation (FGV), together with the Ministry of Tourism, with some sector results for the period from January to April.

    The study shows, for example, that the number of domestic arrivals (passengers) on regular flights in April was 4.15 million. The previous record had been in January, when there were 4.11 million arrivals.

    In the accumulated result for the first four months of the year, the figure reached 16.4 million, an increase of 9.1% over the same period in 2006. The study shows that the result was powered by the growth of arrivals on regular flights (commercial).

    The volume of foreign currency revenues, the expenses of foreigners in the country, reached, in the first four months of the year, US$ 1.332 billion – a result 9.7% greater than in the same period last year.

    This result is the greatest obtained since the sector started being evaluated. Such growth occurred in spite of a 8.79% reduction in the number of the foreign tourists coming to Brazil in the first three months of this year.

    The last record in tourist bilateral trade (revenues plus expenses) was also a highlight for having ended the period at US $ 2.925 billion, 18.9% over the total for the same period in 2006.

      ch.c: sexual voyeurist non pareil. you are obsessed with everybody elses sexual proclivities, you can get help for that its called love.
      I hope the hookers are raising their prices. Obsession with sex and morality, how Religious of you.

      Tax the hookers like they do in Holland.

      Their are hookers everywhere in the world.

      Men that use hookers have a hole in their souls

      And people that obsess about the sexual behavior of others are projecting their own fears of their sexual bent.

      Grow up, get a wife.

      Because of the increased value of the Real, the people that are coming to Brazail are coming because they want to not that this is all they can afford. A better class of tourist. Tourists with money.

      Wrong. People make comments to see what the responses will be. It’s like clock work on this site when it comes to sex tourist. Get a wife, One’s fear of sex, Another stupid posters which RioMonger comes up with all the time and so forth. Sorry…you are a little behind the game. The object is to draw them out with nonsense and see what their replies are. Maybe you are one. Who knows, who cares? πŸ˜‰

      that place has turned into a european whore-hunting safari.
      What was it before ????
      Like SP or Rio brothels ?
      Why is the question not asked to the prostitutes : are foreigners more or less caring ? More or less generous ?
      And this despite your currency appreciation !
