While the post-coach strike tourism figures may paint a sorry picture come the end of the year, the pre-coach strike facts show a near nine per cent rise in British tourism and that the seven per cent drop in Germans has been off-set by expanding alternative markets. The Balearic Minister for Tourism, Celesti Alomar, presented the figures for the first six months of the year yesterday. While he admitted there is some concern about the poor condition of the German market, he revealed that, contrary to popular belief, the German market is the only European market which has not shown any growth in the Balearics for the past six years. Because of the 6.9 per cent fall in German tourists Alomar said “we've got to continue working on the German market, as we have been for the past two years as we are aware of the fact that the Balearics has more competition from cheaper destinations” than at the end of the 90*s.
