Portugal’s Algarve Region expects more tourism in 2010. The most recent annual survey by the regional tourism board, ERTA, indicated that local officials and businesspeople expect the area’s tourism sector to rebound in 2010. Approximately 32 percent of those surveyed said that 2010 will show increases over 2009, while 41 percent indicated things will remain the same. Another 23 percent are looking for things to get worse this year.


Those who took the survey also indicated that the Algarve Region should invest in drawing visitors from traditional markets but also new ones. Traditionally the Algarve draws visitors from the UK, Ireland, Germany, Holland and Spain, while newer markets include Russia and Eastern Europe as well as Scandinavian Countries.
