Tourism hopes to return to growth path

Professionals expect tourism to grow at about 3%-4% again this year, said minister of local governments Zoltán Varga at the opening of the 33rd Travel Fair on Thursday at Hungexpo Budapest Fair Center.

The minister said that last year domestic tourism exceeded the inbound, a phenomenon that could dampen the effects of the crisis but is not sustainable in the long run. Varga thinks inbound tourism has to be motivated in the future.

In 2010, 35 countries and 600 exhibitors present their services at the fair, open through March 5-7 in the Budapest Fair Center. (BBJ Online)
