Dear Dr.Olena Lazorenko,

you can find the Travel and Tourism Competitiveness Report 2015 on the website of the World Economic Forum: reports.weforum.org/travel-and-tourism-competitiveness-report-2015/

Dear Minerva Vargas,

Here you can find Statistics and facts on the travel and tourism industry in Latin America: www.statista.com/topics/2068/travel-and-tourism-industry-in-latin-america/

Maybe the Latin American Travel Association can provide further information: www.lata.org

Kind regards,
