Turks and Caicos Tourism Arrivals Highlight Growth
Turks and Caicos Islands
The Turks and Caicos Islands tourism arrivals for 2011 surpassed the one million mark, growing to an all time high in the country’s history. Total arrivals for the past year were 1,009,720 with cruise ship arrivals accounting for 655,497 and land base arrivals accounting for 354,223.
In recognition of this accomplishment, and upon review of the official statistics report, Ralph Higgs, Director of Tourism commented, “The islands continue to shine despite a number of factors that would have diverted it from growth. These numbers indicate not only good news for the country and the tourism industry, but also suggest a potential for growth in the further months and years ahead.” Higgs added, “Surpassing the one million mark is a major accomplishment for us, our partners and stakeholders in the industry. Whilst we are delighted and hugely proud of this achievement, we are also cognisant of the work that lies ahead.”
