Minister of Economy and Sustainable Development Natia Turnava says that one of the reasons for strengthening the exchange rate, among others, will be the money coming in from tourism.
 
"Against the background of the global pandemic, it is difficult to make predictions. However, it is a fact that tourism will become more healthy, which gives grounds to expect the strengthening of the exchange rate. This year we will probably reach 25-30% of 2019 tourism levels, which means that more foreign currency will flow from tourism," Turnava said.
 
In May of this year, the Minister predicted that tourism would recover by up to 50%.

"I think the recovery will be more than 30%, it could be up to 50%. Of course, a lot depends on the global pandemic, but vaccination has started, we see that numerous groups from different countries are already visiting us," said Turnava in May.
