António Pires de Lima praises Portuguese tourism

Talk about blowing your own trumpet, Economy Minister, António Pires de Lima has praised Portugal by claiming that they are better at hosting tourists than other countries in a recent speech he delivered.

He substantiated this statement by claiming that the reason for this was because Portugal has become a top tourist destination.

“Portugal is sought after as a tourist destination because its people do a good job receiving both national and foreign tourists. We are good hosts; we are a hospitable and warm nation that knows how to welcome tourists better than other neighbouring nations that compete with us,” he said.

Some might have thought that his remarks were subliminally hinting towards Portugal doing better in tourism than Spain.

The tourism industry in Portugal has grown by 10 percent over all sectors according to the National Statistics Institute.
