President spoke about tourism sector - Tourism is at zero level


July 7, Fineko/abc.az. Tourism is at the grassroots level. Although we thought that this year the country will be visited by about 3.5 million tourists, since last year it was a record limit of 3 million. This is what we planned for this year.

ABC.AZ reports President Ilham Aliyev made such a statement after familiarizing himself with the conditions created in the hospital of the modular type at the medical center of the Ministry of Emergency Situations in Khatayi district of Baku, intended for the treatment of patients with coronavirus.

The head of state noted that this would mean at least $2 billion in foreign currency entering the country's economy.

"We are deprived of this as well," President Aliyev said.
