Mehmet Nuri Ersoy, the minister of culture and tourism, said that despite numerous international instabilities, unfavorable events in the region, wars, and the terrible earthquakes that struck last year and were termed the “disaster of century,” Turkey is still making steady progress toward its tourism objectives.

During a speech given at a meeting hosted by the Antalya Union of Chamber of Tradesmen and Craftsmen (AESOB), Ersoy mentioned that Antalya hosted a record number of guests last year.

Ersoy mentioned that the Turkish Statistical Institute (TurkStat) would release the precise tourism numbers at the end of this month. He also mentioned that 15.7 million people visited the southern tourism gem when it closed the year before.

He added that they anticipated hosting more than 56.5 million visitors to Turkey this year. Spotlighting the Turkey tourism sector, Ersoy said:

“Despite many global instabilities, negative developments in its environment, wars and the ‘disaster of the century,’ Türkiye continues to steadily advance toward its goals in tourism,”

After Moscow invaded Ukraine on February 24, tourism revenue surged 53.4% to a new high of approximately $46.3 billion in 2022 as the pandemic’s aftereffects subsided and Russian visits soared. In the first nine months of 2023, income increased by more than 20% compared to the same period the previous year, reaching $42 billion.
