Turkey expects 3.5 million Arab visitors this year

Published on : Thursday, June 29, 2017

Turkey expects 3.5Mr. Cemalettin Kerim, the chairman of the Arab-Turkish Businessmen’s Association or ARTIAD explained that they anticipate 3.5 million Arab visitors to enter Turkey this year. To note, an average Western family spends $700 during their stay in Turkey while an Arab family spends approximately $3,000.


In the last three years, Kerim informed the Anadolu Agency or AA that approximately 7 million Arab visitors had arrived in Turkey as Arabs are now quite fond of Turkey.


Kerim while illustrating said that Arab countries closely pursue Turkey due to Turkish TV series and high-level visits as well as the umrah pilgrimage, Jerusalem visits and business relations, “the Turkish government also made a good decision by increasing the number of foreign trade attachés and consulates. For example, this figure increased 100 percent in 10 years and the necessary incentives were made for them to prefer Turkey.”


He also pin-pointed the fact that procurement delegations are frequently brought to Turkey and fairs are organized, adding that there are good projects in progress. To quote him, ‘continuous advertisements due to sponsorship of Turkish Airlines [THY] along with the high number of flights is a very important factor. In the past, there was neither such project nor the opportunity. As long as the manager is honest and smart, the world is conquered,” he said. “Fortunately, there are direct flights everywhere. This also supports relations. No matter what happens now, the Arab world supports Turkey.’
