Tourism advisor, Janet Ayala, stated the following to Prensa Latina: “It’s an important delegation, which goes to show the relevance that we are giving to the Argentinian market, which was a source of 99,000 visitors in 2017.”
“At this time, we are consolidating our relationships with networks of retailers to increase the number of travelers, taking as a point of departure the operations started by Argentine Airlines last July,” stated Ayala.

The Cuba Única campaign, presented at the International Tourism Fair FitCuba-2022 this past May, was promoted in Paris as well.
According to Cuban authorities, “the campaign places the Cuban people at the center of the attractiveness of the island, and as a component that distinguishes Cuba as tourist destination from all others in the Caribbean.”
Ever since Tourism Minister, Juan Carlos García Granda, announced in 2021 that Cuba expected to welcome at least 2.5 million tourists to the island in 2022, the authorities have continued to present Cuba as a “destination” throughout various regions in the globe, including Canada, Uruguay, Italy, Turkey, India and Cambodia.
