Mehmet Nuri Ersoy, Minister of Culture and Tourism of Türkiye, announced the results today saying: “In 2022, global visitor data will have recovered by 65% compared to the pre-pandemic period, but Türkiye has almost reached its pre-pandemic numbers.

“Our tourism revenue growth is even more impressive.”

In 2022, Türkiye’s tourism revenue hit a record $46.3 billion, with an increase of 19% compared to 2019. These results certify that Türkiye had a great return after the pandemic, and we are confident that we will welcome 90 million tourists and achieve $100 billion in tourism revenue by the end of 2028.

“Tükiye will increase its global promotional activities and focus on sustainability. To achieve our goals over the next 5 years, we will focus on market diversification, global promotion and branding of our regions and our specific products and on creating a sustainable tourism ecosystem.

“Turkiye is the first country in the world to sign a collaboration agreement with Global Sustainable Government-level Tourism Council (GSTC).”

“Our agreement with the GSTC provides for a 3-step plan until the end of 2030, by which time we will have a 100% sustainable tourism ecosystem in our own village.

“Our global branding and promotion activities will increase year by year, and by end of 2028, we will have a total of 9 destination brands and 20 product sub-brands which they will present the entire tourist and cultural offer of our country to the whole world. We will support the diversity and continuity of communication, thus operating with a budget of 225 million dollars for marketing communications by 2028.”
