Majed Ishaq, Palestine Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities: “The results were better than our expectations. We believe that WTM Latin America is the right show to be part of in the whole region.”

Majed Ishaq, director general of marketing, Palestine Ministry of Tourism and Antiquities, said: “The results were better than our expectations. We believe that WTM Latin America is the right show to be part of in the whole region.”


According to the World Tourism Organization, in the first half of 2017, Palestine was the country with the highest growth in the number of international tourists by comparison with the same period in 2016. Many of these visitors are on religious pilgrimages, with Christianity being a big focus among Latin American travellers to this part of the Middle East.


Luciane Leite, WTM Latin America’s director, said: “Latin America is a region with strong Christian religiosity, and religious tourism is one of the major drivers of the domestic travel industry, being an important market for those who wish to increase their influence in the sector.


“Palestine’s return to WTM Latin America confirms Latin America’s full tourism potential as well as the region’s influence on global tourism.”
