last year, one of them claimed that 1000 people are leving Guyana everyday. That would nmean in a single year 365,000 people would be gone..
I was simply countering the article posted here on this Discussion Board and carried by new outlets SN, GC, KN, Guyana Times, and Demerara Waves. It is a shame that a government official has to fabricate numbers, when it comes to our tourism industry. We have a wonderful country and should put in place a credible Tourism Campaign to attract those numbers, credibly.

According to the CTO's most updated travel statistics, this is completely inaccurate. In the month of October 10,852 visitors traveled to Guyana. Thats about 350 visitors per day. So unless by some crazy anamoly where it increased by 300%, the Minister is telling a total lie. I do not understand how credible new outlets can carry this claim as fact.
In fact, Suriname had more than 40,000 more tourist than Guyana for 2011 so far. So we still have a way to go in changing the image of our country to attract more tourist, especially from within the Continential South America.
