Asia Pacific and Middle East are lagging comparing the on-thebook variations to the 2017 year-to-date variations: Asia Pacific outlook is affected by a sharp decrease in early bookings of Chinese groups to Mauritius, while Middle East has negative outlook not only for, but for worldwide destinations in general, due to its ongoing regional economic and geological crisis.

7 2017YTD: EAC attracting intra-n and Middle East travellers more EAC destinations received a robust growth of 14.3% for 2017 year to date.
