The driving force

The driving force behind the recovery in Valencia is tourism. Last year 22.6 million foreigners visited the region, this year 23.6 million are expected - a rise of 11.5%. As an example, in February there were more than 539,000 visitors, an increase of 14% over the previous year.

Tourism accounts for 13.4% of GDP and provides employment for 270,000 people.
