In brief: Protests impact tourism in Argentina’s Jujuy province

Federico Posadas, tourism minister for Argentina’s north-western province of Jujuy, has stated that roadblocks that have been in place in part of the province for almost a month are having a “desperate” impact on tourism in terms of economy, occupancy rates and image. In an interview with a local radio station, he stated that the situation was “very complicated”, noting that around 25,000 families depend on the province’s tourism sector for their livelihoods. Protests erupted in Jujuy on 20 June in response to reforms made to the provincial constitution. Other sectors, including the cargo and freight transport sector, have raised concerns around the impact of the protests on business. Jujuy is home to tourist destinations such as the Quebrada de Humahuaca mountain valley and colonial village of Purmamarca.
