Spain office of tourism reveal spend by nationality

The National Tourism Office for Spain (Instituto de Estudios Turisticos) has published a report on the pages of their website which details tourist expenditure for 2013.

Brittany Ferries

The data, which is compiled by the Nationality of each tourist, includes the amount of spend (in Euros) per person (Duration of visit) and per day for both both the entire month of March and for the first quarter of the year.

If visitor expenditure - as opposed to total visitor numbers - is to be considered the best inidcation of importance to the economy by nationality, then it seems that the British market is losing it's appeal.

The data also reveals an increasing level of growth from other Non-EU destination countries, such as Russia, China and India.

Based on what ? The "Reported" incomes of small bars and restaurants around the Costas ? - Then, in the next news release, the National Office of Statistics will be telling us that Spain is the worst country in the EU for undeclared income / black money. Meaning that these figures are meaningless.

Impressive figures from the Ministry of Bullshit which mean absolutely jack shit - especially when the Senate is voting to ban private holiday rentals.!!! Never mind, some decent salaries are being paid to Men In Suits to collate the Bullshit figures.
