The number of foreign tourists increased by 5% y/y to 4.6mn in Jan-Oct, the tourism agency reported. In October alone, the number of foreign tourists remained almost unchanged y/y despite the hope of the sector that the relatively warm weather this year would help improve the results. The biggest markets remained more or less unchanged but the decline on the biggest of them, Germany, continued and even worsened - the number of visitors from this country declined by 9.7% y/y against a drop of 2.8% a year ago. The fall has been attributed to over-construction, poor infrastructure and disproportionate quality and price of services.
