Let’s examines the tourism industry’s growth in the Philippines and discusses the potential of investing in luxury hospitality projects in 2023 in Southeast Asia.
Impressive Growth in International Visitor Arrivals
The Philippine tourism industry has exceeded its target of 1.7 million visitors, reaching 2.65 million international visitor arrivals by the end of 2022. This translated to PHP 208.96 billion (USD 3.68 billion) in tourism revenue, a 2465.75% increase from the same period in the previous year. The new record includes nearly one million additional visitors compared to the year-end target.
In a report, The Department of Tourism (DOT) said the figure covered only from February 2022 to end December because the tourism industry only reopened its borders for all type of travelers in the second month of last year.
Strong Support From the Government
The Department of Tourism (DOT) has been actively working towards the recovery of the tourism sector. The government’s continuous support for the industry has helped revive the tourism economy, with President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. recognizing the industry as a driver of economic recovery.
Job Creation and Tourism-related Enterprises
The tourism industry has generated an estimated 5.23 million tourism-related jobs, while 11,989 DOT-accredited tourism enterprises were operating as of December 29, 2022. Moreover, a total of 25,770 tourism stakeholders have received training.
Investment Potential in Luxury Hospitality Projects
Given the strong growth in international visitor arrivals and government support, investing in luxury hospitality projects in the Philippines presents a lucrative opportunity in 2023. The increasing number of tourists, particularly from affluent markets such as the United States, South Korea, Australia, Canada, and the United Kingdom, indicates a growing demand for high-quality accommodation and hospitality services.
Increased Tourism Targets for 2023
DOT has set a target of 4.8 million international visitors for 2023, reflecting the optimism surrounding the Philippine tourism industry’s potential for further growth. This presents an ideal opportunity for investors to capitalize on the increasing demand for luxury hospitality projects.
The resurgence of the tourism industry in the Philippines, coupled with strong government support and optimistic growth targets, highlights the potential for investing in luxury hospitality projects in 2023.
