AMSTERDAM — The number of foreign tourists visiting the Netherlands rose by 9 percent last year, the Netherlands Bureau for Tourism and Congresses (NBTC) said on Monday.

A record 10.9 million foreign tourists visited the country last year.

The NBTC attributed the "historically rapid growth" of foreign tourists to advertising campaigns for city trips such as the City Break Campaign and CoolCapitals and worldwide economic growth.

For 2007, NBTC expects modest further growth of foreign tourist numbers.

Meanwhile, the number of Dutch vacationers abroad conversely fell slightly.
