Tourism Minister Stas Misezhnikov and his Argentinean counterpart Carlos Enrique Meyer will sign a tourism agreement in the near future, after Misezhnikov, who was accompanying President Shimon Peres on his South American tour, said on Tuesday that "Israel considers Argentina to be a country with great tourism potential." Meyer said he aspires to promote code-sharing agreements on the Brazil-Israel route and encourage the inception of direct flights between Buenos Aires and Tel Aviv. In May 2009, El Al began to operate a direct flight route between Tel Aviv and Sao Paolo. An estimated 60,000 tourists from the continent visited Israel in the period January-October 2009. A tourism agreement was signed between Israel and Brazil last week during the president's visit to the country.
