Tourism is one of the mainstays of the Spanish economy and an outstanding driver of social development. It accounts for almost 11% of Spain’s GDP and 11.8% of employment. Thanks to modest growth year on year, tourism continues to contribute substantially to offsetting the country’s trade deficit. With 57.7 million foreign visitors (+2.7% over 2011) and EUR 43.3 billion in international tourism receipts (+1.2%), Spain consolidated its position in 2012 as the fourth largest destination worldwide in terms of arrivals, and the second largest in terms of receipts.
