Minister of Tourism and Culture Fikri Ataoglu visited the TRNC stand at the ITB Berlin Travel Exhibition and met with tour operators and travel agency representatives to discuss steps that will be taken this year to further develop the tourism industry.
The tourism minister said, “In 2018 we attended two fairs in Germany, ITB will be the third fair that we attended in Germany. There is an interest in North Cyprus taking part. North Cyprus will make an important debut in the German market this year. As the ministry, we want to carry this on even further in our sector. “
Ataoglu also signed an international protocol with Health Tourism President Ahmet Savasan aimed at providing health insurance to visiting tourists so that they may be treated at the Near East Hospital if the need arises.
Speaking during the event, he said that they were working to increase consumer satisfaction for those tourists visiting the country and added that tourists will be able to visit the TRNC knowing that any healthcare requirements will be catered for.
