Taiwan's tourism revenues surpass US$11bn in 2011
Taiwan's tourism income reached a record high in 2011, but still lagged behind the other three Asian Tigers, the Council for Economic Planning and Development (CEPD) said Wednesday, Taiwan's official Central News Agency reported.
The CEPD said the country's international tourism revenues last year reached over US$11 billion, up 26.4 percent from the previous year.
International tourist arrivals totaled 6.09 million, 9.34 percent more than in 2010. Both tourism income and arrivals recorded new highs, the news agency reported the council as saying.
