Tourism increases despite global recession

The Australian Bureau of Statistics has just released its figures for short-term visitors to Australia in March, showing a 0.9 percent increase in tourism on the previous month.

This is the third consecutive rise in arrivals, with January and February both recording a one percent rise, and is 0.7 percent up on last year’s visitor numbers.

While tourist numbers from northern Asia – particularly Japan and Korea – dropped, Malaysian visitors accounted for the biggest increase.
