Tourism in Spain continues its growth cycle and displays unprecedented numbers earlier this year. BBVA's quarterly reports confirm the fact that the arrival of foreign visitors and spending by non-residents in Spain from January to March 2015 reached "the growth in the previous quarter, which leaves the sector activities of tourism at record levels."
Tourism is the economic engine of Spain and has a positive influence on other economic indicators, conclude the experts of bank. In particular, the export of services in Spain "preserve the dynamic pace" thanks to the tourism. This contrasts with exports of goods showing "zero growth" in the first quarter of this year.
