Jorge Pesquera ta mira 2006 cu hopi optimismo: AÃ’A 2005 TABATA UN AÃ’A RECORD DEN BENTA Y DEN AUMENTO DI CALIDAD DI E PRODUCTO CU YAMA “ARUBA

Optimism without having looked at the last two business quarters? Peter Steinmetz, manager of Aruba Airport Authority says compared to last year, fewer passengers arrived at the airport of Aruba in the last five months of 2005. Or this less than optimistic article from Amigoe stating that “according to the Bank, the cruise passengers have dropped with almost 40 percent in October of this year. The hotel occupancy was almost 78 percent in October”.

But somehow Jorge Pesquera looks at 2006 with much optimism:

He continued to say that the first 6 months of 2005 had a never before seen occupancy rate in Aruba. He added that for the two quarters of the year that has just passed, they still have to take a look at the results.

ORANJESTAD (AAN): In a conversation with Mr. Jorge Pesquera, CEO of the Aruba Hotel and Tourism Association (AHATA), we asked him about his point of view of 2005 in the hotel branch and our tourism, as well as his perspective for the year 2006.

Mr. Pesquera stated that the year 2005, even taking into account everything that happened with Natalee Holloway, in his opinion was a record year in sales and in the increased quality of the Aruba product. “Without a doubt”, he said.
