German National Tourist Board to Target Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand

The German National Tourist Board (GNTB) is to increase its marketing activities in Indonesia, Malaysia, Singapore and Thailand.

“In 2015 about 2.0 million trips to Europe were made from these four important high-growth markets, nearly 300,000 of these were to Germany” said Petra Hedorfer, Chief Executive Officer of the GNTB. “By 2030 the volume of overnight stays from the Asian source markets in which we haven’t had a presence so far could more than double, from 1.4 million to 3.3 million. We aim to take advantage of these significant opportunities for growth.”
