Mexico on Sunday, May 22, inaugurated its annual Tianguis Turistico fair, an event to promote national and international tourism products and services, in Acapulco, Guerrero, as tourism companies around the world strive to recover from the covid-19 pandemic.
Mexican Interior Secretary Adan Augusto López and Tourism Secretary Miguel Torruco cut the ribbon at the opening of the 46th annual Tianguis Turistico, Mexico’s top tourism fair, which will run through Wednesday, May 25, in the resort city.
During the opening ceremony, the federal officials presented a series of measures aimed at boosting the tourism sector through improvements to airport infrastructure and highways, although there has been concern as to the lowering of the rating of Mexico’s airspace by the U.S. Federal Aviations Association (FAA) and the precarious future of the newly opened Felipe Ángles International Airport (AIFA).
The annual Tianguis includes the participation of representatives of travel agencies, restaurants, hotels, airlines and others from more than 70 countries, Torruco said.
Mexico is expected to receive more than 40 million international tourists this year, he said.
