The State Tourism Committee intends to balance the age contingent of  tourists

ArmInfo.There is a widespread opinion that middle-aged and older tourists prefer to  visit Armenia, but this trend has its advantages. The Chairperson of  the State Tourism Committee of the RA Ministry of Economy Susanna  Safaryan stated this during a February 26 press conference, answering  a question by ArmInfo correspondent.

"Older tourists, unlike young people who have already made it and are  solvent, do not spare funds for their trip, which cannot but have a  positive economic effect," she explained.

At the same time, Safaryan noted that, despite the economic benefit  for the country from tourists of this age group, the Tourism  Committee intends this year to carry out activities aimed at  attracting young people and to ensure the availability of services  for them.

However, she said that thanks to the digital tools introduced since  the New Year, the Tourism Committee will be able to obtain more  detailed statistics regarding the age of tourists, whether they are  visiting Armenia for the first time, and other important  characteristics.  It should be noted that, according to the  Statistical Committee of the Republic of Armenia, in 2019 Armenia was  visited by 1.894 million tourists, which is 14.7% more than in 2018  (against growth by 10.5% a year earlier). And 1.868 million people  left Armenia for tourist purposes, and this is 15.1% higher than last  year's indicator (against growth by 9.5% a year earlier). It is  noteworthy that in 2018-2019 a high positive balance of tourist flow  was recorded, while in 2016 the balance was negative - there were  more tourists leaving Armenia for tourist trips than tourists who  visited Armenia.
