Public Accommodation Nights up 1pct

During January–July 2010, the number of people staying in public accommodation in Hungary was 1pct higher than the previous year.

The number of tourism nights has remained essentially unchanged, as have revenues from dormant prices. Tourist branches have shown only a few signs of economic recovery; employment data indicated an improvement, while indicators of investment and demand continued to show a decrease on the same period last year. In spite of an increase in real earnings in the first half of this year, domestic demand has continued to decline. In this way, the number of domestic arrivals has also decreased compared with the last year’s low base. At the same time, there was a 6pct increase in the number of international arrivals, although this was only enough to approximate the performances of 2006.
Six-month sales in catering units were only 96pct of last year’s totals.
