Tourism officials maintain optimism but warn that summer has little room for growth – Cm ao Minuto

Those responsible for tourism, such as CTP, AHP and APAVT, admit that 2023 is going well, but prefer to maintain a moderate optimism due to the continuity of uncertainties for the end of the year, warning that the summer has little room for growth.

The impact of the performance of tourism on the national economy in the first quarter, which grew above the expectations of some of the main economic institutions, has been influencing forecasts for the country. Institutions such as the IMF or the European Commission have recently stated that the above-expected performance in the first quarter has been largely driven by tourism, whose recovery continues to be stronger than expected.

Lusa heard the presidents of the Confederation of Tourism of Portugal (CTP), the Association of Hotels of Portugal (AHP) and the Portuguese Association of Travel and Tourism Agencies (APAVT) to see if this performance is felt in the day-to-day activity , if you believe that it will continue throughout the semester and then in the summer, and with that to close another year better than expected, in a situation that appears to be difficult, of instability, and with war, inflation and high interest rates.
