Georgia sets a new all-time high

Georgia sets a new all-time high

“I am about to quote a new all-time high in the history of Georgia's tourism. In 2018, Georgia hosted 8,679,544 international visitors. For a small country like ours, it is a unique achievement, indeed, and what it means above all else is that Georgia's visibility and attractiveness are growing in leaps and bounds”, Prime Minister of Georgia Mamuka Bakhtadze said, Caspian Energy News ( reports with reference to the press office of the Prime Minister of Georgia.

Equally important and positive is that the world's most reputable organizations and publications, in 2018, numbered Georgia among the safest and tourist-friendly countries, Mamuka Bakhtadze added.

“In the same vein, according to the Numbeo global crowd-sourced portal, Georgia ranked 5th among 125 countries in 2018. The UN World Tourism Organization ranked Georgia 4th in the world, and 2nd in Europe, as one of the fastest-growing destination in the world,” Mamuka Bakhtadze said.

According to Mamuka Bakhtadze, tourism is one of Georgia’s key directions. Georgia has great potential for stepping up this direction, and the Georgian Government is doing its best to transform Georgia into one of the exceptional destinations on the world's tourist map.

“It is an excellent trend, and we must build on it. In 2018, revenues from tourism exceeded 3 billion USD, another all-time high in the history of Georgia's tourism. Now, we must channel all our efforts toward the rapid bettering of our tourism infrastructure and services. We will foster the creation of new tourist attractions and encourage additional investments in less developed regions”, Mamuka Bakhtadze said.
