Tourism industry of Armenia presented its proposals to stimulate  domestic tourism

ArmInfo. The tourism industry of Armenia presented its proposals regarding the necessary measures by the state to support tourism, in particular from the point of view of reducing risks in view of the current situation related to coronavirus.

In particular, according to the press service of the Ministry of  Economy, representatives of the domestic tourism industry demand from  the government interest-free loans and refinement of mechanisms that  would be aimed at the needs of the most affected areas and those that  are most difficult to recover from a temporary point of view. This  was stated during a meeting of the Minister of Economy of the  Republic of Armenia Tigran Khachatryan with members of the working  group created by representatives of the private sector of the tourism  field.

According to the report, Khachatryan presented the steps of the  government aimed at restoring the sector in the short and long term,  which will contribute to maintaining and expanding the competitive  advantages of Armenia. The Minister emphasized the importance of  close cooperation with the private sector and the integrated  implementation of work under the current conditions. He presented the  participants with statistics on applications for participation in  anti-crisis government packages received by representatives of the  tourism industry, and the main reasons for their rejection. The  Minister emphasized the importance of the government's switch from  response programs to development programs.  During the meeting, the  interlocutors discussed further steps by the government aimed at  stimulating domestic tourism. Representatives of the field expressed  their willingness to make proposals for the development of this area.   To recall, during the final press conference on the 100 facts about  the new Armenia, Prime Minister Nikol Pashinyan emphasized the need  to fully load tourism infrastructures by stimulating domestic  tourism.

According to experts of the RA Tourism Federation, the restoration of  the main incomes of the tourism sector can be expected from April  2021. It should be noted that, according to the Statistical Committee  of the Republic of Armenia, 311,264 people visited Armenia in the Q1  (with a decline of 14.6% per annum), and 275 716 people left (with a  y-o-y decline of 13.3%) .
