Rabat - Some 5.8 million tourists have visited Morocco up to July 2011, a rise of 3.4% compared to the same period of last year, according to statistics of the Ministry of Tourism.
This upward trend has concerned the Kingdom's major markets, namely France (+3%), Germany (+13%), the United Kingdom (+9%), Belgium (+14%) and the Netherlands (+9%), said the Ministry, adding that tourist arrivals from Spain have decreased 3%. The night stays fell by 2.4% in the reporting period.
Morocco sought to attract 10 million tourists by 2010 under Vision 2010, but the global economic slump has had a clear impact on the tourist flow.
