Turkey set to generate $22 billion from tourism in 2021

Despite the negative impact of Covid-19 worldwide, Turkey has devised a plan to generate $22 billion from tourism in 2021. Turkey is expected to draw more than 28 million foreign tourists in 2021, according to Mehmet Nuri Ersoy, Turkish culture and tourism minister.

The country’s promotional efforts have played a key role in this recovery. Speaking at a two-day economy summit in Bursa, the minister said the nation’s tourism revenues reached $16.8 billion during the first nine months of 2021, while they stood at $12.1 billion in 2020.

Antalya, Turkey’s southern resort city has kept its title as ‘the most popular Mediterranean destination’ for the second consecutive time after hosting the highest number of visitors in the region. The city, with its 680,000-bed capacity, hosted 8.6 million tourists in the last 10 months.
