In 2014 year in 2,414 million tourists rest in Cyprus, 2015 in 2,659 million, 2016 in 3,186 million, and 2017 in 3,652 million. This year, the head of the Board of Directors of the Cyprus Tourism Organization (STO ) Angelos Loisu set a new record - 4 million. However, in the tourist industry it is necessary to urgently carry out the reform, otherwise the rollback may start, the head of the SRT warns in an interview with InBusinessNews.

Achievements

  • From 2014 to 2017 years of tourist flow in Cyprus increased by 50%. Growth in the tourist flow in the winter (from 1 November to 31 March) for the same period reached 70%. All this became possible due to an increase in the number of flights on traditional routes for Cyprus and the opening of new routes.
  • In Cyprus, now build 13 hotels: three 5-star (in Agios Tychonas, Sotira and Larnaca), three 4-star (in Kato Paphos, Ayia Napa and Geroskipou), seven 3-star (three in Ayia Napa, two - in Protaras and one at Polis and Chloraka). Another 60 hotel has just opened after the upgrade or is about to do so.

Needs

It is necessary to create a separate Ministry of Tourism (ideally) or a sub-ministry, which will operate autonomously in the bowels of the Ministry of Energy, Commerce, Industry and Tourism.
