On behalf of the members of the governing board, De la Madrid Cordero stressed that international tourists arrivals by air managed to triple the world growth rate of tourism in 2015.

Mexico is moving forward in the diversification of markets in order to not rely solely on the performance of the market of the United States and has experienced growth from major markets such as Guatemala, Argentina, South Korea, Costa Rica, Colombia, Chile and China.
