What is your point of view about this year’s tourism sector? Could you please share your forecast for 2024?

Despite all the worldwide unfortunate events in 2023, we are closing the year with numbers beyond our expectations. Tourism industry has started to recover as the negative effects of February 6 earthquake that happened in 2023 and affected our country deeply has lessened and as we left the stagnancy the general election of 2023 had brought behind. The first 9 months of the year saw 12% increase in number of tourists and 13,5% increase in tourism profit per person. November data shows that we will break a record this year just like other European countries after the pandemic. Both the number of tourists that visited our country and the increase in tourism revenue at the end of the year allow us to have a positive outlook on 2024. According to Global Travel Report published by World Travel Market, it is estimated that Türkiye will get ahead of France as the second most visited country in Europe in 2024. We, as tourism professionals, will do our best to accomplish this goal.
