The number of tourists having made for Madagascar has enjoyed a plus 20% increase during the first four months of the year, compared to the same period in 2009.
Professionals are recovering hope anew although nothing is yet to be held for granted.
The hotel rooms booking rate is now fluctuating between 30% and 50%, a poor score for tourism operators. So much more is being required for long term expections.

The name of Mantasoa went down in history first as the place which hosted one of the island's first industrial facilities founded by a certain Jean Laborde, Frenchman and friend to the Kingdom of Madagascar.[See]
