Baku. Javid Zeynalli – APA. The number of Arab tourists visiting Azerbaijan is now eight times more compared to last year, said Azerbaijan’s Minister of Culture and Tourism Abulfas Garayev.

 

He made the remarks on Tuesday at a press conference dedicated to the professional holiday of tourism employees, APA reported.

 

There has been a dramatic increase in the number of tourists visiting Azerbaijan over recent years, he noted.

 

“The state policy being pursued in this area is coming to fruition. Luckily, there are large numbers of tourists coming not only from Arab countries, but also Russia and Kazakhstan. The priority now is to achieve positive changes in services,” he said.
