“Tangible strides have been made in Argentina’s travel and tourism industries, mostly due to policy changes that have helped facilitate growth in international arrivals and redistribution of both international and domestic tourism flows to all regions of the country. If the incoming president elect continues to implement policies that will support tourism growth, development and management, the industry could be a key pillar in Argentina’s overall economic health.”
