据老挝政府估计,2019年赴老游客收入约8.76亿美元,比2018年下降2.63%。

根据老挝新闻文化旅游部数据显示,去年老挝政府期有500万游客赴老,预计收入9亿美元,但实际只有418万人。

同2017年相比,2018赴老游客人数增加了8.2%,其中大部分来自泰国,越南和中国。

来自非洲和中东的旅游人数下降了32%,从13,565人减少到9,264人。

旅游业是老挝财政收入来源之一,不仅在促进经济增长方面发挥了重要作用,而且还为当地人民创造了大量就业机会。

?2015年,赴老游客为460万人,经济创收达7.25亿美元。但在2016年后略有下降,赴老游客人数约420万游客,旅游创收为7.24亿美元。

2017年,政府预计将有480万人赴老挝旅游,旅游创收达8.43亿美元。但2017年游客人数仅为386万人,比2016年减少了8.73%。

2017年,老挝旅游业对国内生产总值(GDP)的贡献总额约为20亿美元,占国内生产总值的13.7%。到2028年,这一数字预计将增至33亿美元。

The government estimates that the revenue earned from foreign visitors will be US$876 million this year, a drop of 2.63 percent compared to last year.?

The government had targeted 5 million tourist arrivals last year and income of US$900 million but the latest estimate shows that only 4.18 million people visited Laos. A report on the final figure has yet to be presented, according to the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism.?

The number of people visiting Laos in 2018 increased by 8.2 percent compared to 2017, with most coming from Thailand, Vietnam and China.?

The number of tourists from Thailand increased by 7 percent compared to 2017, with visitor numbers from China rising by 26 percent. In contrast, the number of visitors from Vietnam dropped by 3 percent.?

In 2017, the number of tourists from Thailand reached 1.79 million people, rising by 1.92 million people in 2018. The number of Chinese visitors rose from 639,000 to 800,000 in 2018, while visitors from Vietnam dropped from 891,600 people to 867,580.?

Tourism is one of Laos’ major income earners. In 2015, Laos received 4.6 million visitors, which helped generate US$725 million, but dropped slightly a year later in 2016, earning US$724 million from 4.2 million tourists.?

In 2017, the government expected that 4.8 million people would visit Laos, contributing US$843 million to the budget. But the number of arrivals totalled only 3.86 million, 8.73 percent less than in 2016.?

The tourism industry is not only playing a significant role in boosting economic growth, but is also creating a huge number of jobs for local people.?

Tourism is one of the top five income earners, driving economic growth and contributing to poverty alleviation, the Ministry of Information, Culture and Tourism said.?

In addition, tourism has resulted in the improvement of services and infrastructure, including roads, as well as the construction of new hotels, restaurants, airports and other facilities.?

Improving the tourism sector will enable Laos to gain much-needed additional revenue.?

The growth of the tourism sector is also key to the development of tourism-related infrastructure, such as airports and road links.?

In 2017, the total contribution from travel and tourism to Laos’ Gross Domestic Product (GDP) was around US$2 billion, which accounted for 13.7 percent of total GDP. This figure is expected to rise to US$3.3 billion by 2028.?
