Economist forecasts yearly 300,000 growth of visiting tourists until 2022

YEREVAN, JUNE 27, ARMENPRESS. Economic Vilen Khachatryan highlights the growth of foreign visits to Armenia together with the 3 million tourist inflow in 2022, which is outlined under the government’s action plan.

At a press conference, the economic said according to his estimates, the tourist inflow must increase by 300,000 every year until 2022.

“I separate our tourists to 2 groups – ethnic Armenians and foreigners. Here we have an issue, because the majority of tourists are ethnic Armenians, while providing a high number of foreign visits is pretty hard. We have a task of specifically increasing this number, because we can’t bring the 7 million Diaspora Armenians of the world every year to Armenia, therefore we must work in the direction of citizens of various countries of the world”, he said.
