Stay-over visitor arrivals picked up in the first half of 2014, rising by 6% relative to a year earlier. Furthermore, the number of cruise ship arrivals rose by over 5%.  Overall tourism receipts are estimated to have increased by 7.7% in H1. The economies of three key source markets for tourists - the US, Canada and UK - are all on a solid footing now, so we expect the positive trend in tourism to persist. After two years of recession, the economy is expected to grow by 0.5% in 2014 and 2.3% in 2015. However, the pace of expansion could be constrained by the continued need for fiscal consolidation.
