AKTOB President Kaan Kavaloğlu made his assessment regarding the tourism data realized in Antalya in the first three months of 2023, "The year 2022 has been one of the best examples of the stable growth of tourism in Turkey. By increasing the number of tourists and tourism income proportionally, the per capita travel expenditure has reached 89 dollars. Although the negative atmosphere that escalated between our 2 important resource markets and the stagnation in the global economy, which also affected all our resource markets, lowered our expectations, the data obtained indicate that the rise will continue, as we predicted, except for certain markets. We expect demand to rise, especially in European resource markets. In the January-March 2023 data, our two major resource markets, Germany and the UK, showed an increase of around 50 percent. In both markets, the figures were exceeded in 2019. The UK has increased its market share significantly in recent years. Especially the British We anticipate that a shift in family demand for all-inclusive will continue with the pressure of inflation. Although it showed an increase of 146 percent compared to last year from the Russian Federation, we do not expect the same level for the whole year. We will determine our position according to the course of international relations. Among the high-potential sub-markets, the biggest increase was in Poland, by 76 percent. In terms of population and economic size, we see Poland as a market that needs to be developed as a priority. As the accommodation sector, we stand by all efforts that support market and product diversity."
