In a statement, the Malta Tourism Authority said Malta was outperforming most of Europe as tourist arrivals continue to grow as a faster rate.
According to the the World Tourism Organisation, international tourism demand continued to be ‘robust’.
Prospects for the May-August period remained upbeat, with close to 500 million tourists expected to travel abroad during these four months.
The MTA said it shared this optimism as inbound tourism to Malta was expected to continue to grow in summer.
A spokesman for the Malta Tourism Authority said: ‘From the Maltese perspective, it is satisfying and encouraging to note that Malta’s tourism performance during the first four months of the year shows that inbound visitors to Malta increased by an impressive 5.6 per cent.
‘This implies that Malta’s performance continues, yet again, to exceed the growth rates for both the entire World and Europe: proof that Malta is sustaining its trend of outperforming overall growth rates at global, continental and regional levels’.
