Revenue from international travellers is growing

The Central Bank of Brazil (which controls all the flow of foreigner currency in and out of the country) released today some figures about the international tourist flow.

From January to June of 2006, the foreigner travellers spent a total of US$ 2.195 billion in Brazil; this is more than the amount spent in the entire year of 2002 (US$ 1.998 bi) and is nearing the total of 2003 (US$ 2.479 bi).

The figure for 2006 equals a growth of 17.51% over the same period last year.
The Central Bank forecasts a total for 2006 of around US$ 4.5 billion, up from US$ 3.861 bi in 2005 (so far, the highest ever).
