Mexico business tourism sector is booming

Monterrey (Notimex) -- Business tourism is booming in Mexico and generates some $17 billion each year, according to Gerardo Vera, director of Carlson Wagonlit Travel for Mexico and Central America.

This year, business tourism in Mexico will grow 17 percent, compared with last year, he added.

Vera said that the boom in the sector is due to the country's diversification of markets.

Mexico has opened up, and that's why the sector's growth has been exponential over the past two decades, he said.
