Panama ranks highly in competitiveness survey
Panama ranked eighth in tourism competitiveness in the Americas, according to a report published yesterday by the World Economic Forum.
The United States placed first in the survey, followed by Barbados, Mexico, Canada and Costa Rica.
The tourism competitiveness report was first compiled in 2007, and is a measure of the factors that make a country attractive for tourism-based investments.
“After a period of a severe economic crisis, the travel and tourism industry is starting to see positive signs of recovery, especially in the emerging markets of Latin America, Asia and especially China,” said World Economic Forum official Thea Chiesa.
According to the report, Switzerland, Germany and France are the nations that have environments that are most attractive for the development of the travel and tourism industry. Panama ranked in 56th place globally.
