Venezuelan Tourism Ministry Marlene Contreras on Tuesday said that "nationals and foreigners traveling nationwide during the Holy Week show that people know the government is working despite an economic war against them."
During TV show "El Desayuno" (The Breakfast) on state-run TV channel Venezolana de Televisión (VTV), the official reported that during Easter Venezuelans spent VEB 60.4 billion (USD 604.5 million), a 157.78% surge from the same term in 2015.
Similarly, Contreras added that this year more than 11 million vacationers visited different tourism destinations, which is additional two million people with respect to 2015.
