Cyprus Expects to Welcome More Than 2 Million Tourists This Year
The Deputy Minister for Tourism, Savvas Perdios, revealed that the country expects to host over two million tourists this year, with the summer season being the highlight for the tourism industry in 2022.
Nearly 14 per cent of Cyprus’ GDP is generated from tourism, which makes the country quite dependent on the industry. More specifically, the Cypriot economy has been quite affected by the war in Ukraine, as fewer Russian tourists are expected to visit.
Data from Statista reveals that European countries are anticipated to welcome three million fewer Russian arrivals in the upcoming months, based on the number of seats booked for inbound flights between February and August 2022.
