President Cristina Fernández de Kirchner announced during a rally held at the Government House that the foreign tourism dropped 4.1 percent in 2012, as the amount of Argentines travelling abroad climbed 12.8 percent.

According to the Head of State, 2.4 billion Argentines travelled abroad, 12.8 percent higher than the volume registered in the previous year.

Regarding foreign tourism, Fernández de Kirchner stated that 2.6 billion people entered the country in 2012, 4.1 percent lower than the volume in 2011.

The president stressed that the foreign tourism did not drop because of the inflation, "it's because of the conflicts they are going through."
