Taiwan visitor numbers signal recovery from impact of SARS

TAIPEI, Taiwan -- More than 346,000 Americans visited Taiwan during the first eleven months of this year, a 44% increase compared with last year, according to Taiwan tourism officials.

This is a significant increase over the 240,000 U.S. tourists who visited Taiwan during all of 2003, which was a 30% drop over 2002 figures, signaling the significant impact of SARS in 2003.

Taiwan officials said this year's numbers show that Taiwan -- and all of Asia -- has recovered from the impact of SARS.
