Record Number of Tourists in 1st Quarter of 2018

Turkey has welcomed just over  5.1 million overseas visitors in the first 3 months of the year, Culture  and Tourism Minister Numan Kurtulmuş announced yesterday (Friday) – he highlighted the fact that this was an all-time high and an increase of around 36% compared to the same period in 2017.

The Minister also announced the launch of the The Tourism Advisory Board, comprised of Turkish Airlines and 8 leading non-government organisations, whose role would be to develop projects designed to increase both the number of visitors and the revenue generated from these.

He went on to say ‘’ tourism will be one of the world’s fastest growing economic sectors in the next 10 years – the Tourism Advisory Board will give us fresh perspective’’

With the country’s tourism industry demonstrating an on-going upward trend, Kurtulmuş said that increased revenues would have a significant positive impact on the current account deficit of $47.1 billion. ''If we consider that we are expecting to see visitor revenues of $32 billion for this year, then the tourism sector alone could close this deficit sometime in 2019''.

Lorem Khaled Ipsum is a major key to success. Put it this way, it took twenty five years to get these plants, twenty five years of blood sweat and tears, and I’m never giving up, I’m just getting started. It’s on you how you want to live your life. Everyone has a choice. I pick my choice, squeaky clean.

Let’s see what Chef Dee got that they don’t want us to eat. To succeed you must believe. When you believe, you will succeed. Another one. The key is to enjoy life, because they don’t want you to enjoy life. I promise you, they don’t want you to jetski, they don’t want you to smile. A major key, never panic. Don’t panic, when it gets crazy and rough, don’t panic, stay calm. Put it this way, it took me twenty five years to get these plants, twenty five years of blood sweat and tears, and I’m never giving up, I’m just getting started.

Fan luv. Don’t ever play yourself. You smart, you loyal, you a genius. The key to more success is to have a lot of pillows. Cloth talk. In life there will be road blocks but we will over come it. Give thanks to the most high. Major key, don’t fall for the trap, stay focused. It’s the ones closest to you that want to see you fail.

Learning is cool, but knowing is better, and I know the key to success. I’m up to something. Lion! They never said winning was easy. Some people can’t handle success, I can. The other day the grass was brown, now it’s green because I ain’t give up. Never surrender.

ADAM SMITH manager

The weather is amazing, walk with me through the pathway of more success. Take this journey with me, Lion! To succeed you must believe. When you believe, you will succeed. The first of the month is coming, we have to get money, we have no choice. It cost money to eat and they don’t want you to eat. Watch your back, but more importantly when you get out the shower, dry your back, it’s a cold world out there.
