Tourism Deputy Minister reports “good signs” from Scandinavia and Switzerland

There are good sings from Scandinavian countries and Switzerland, as these markets are expected to boost the Cyprus tourism industry this year, offsetting some of the losses by Russian and Ukraine amidst the Ukrainian crisis, Deputy Minister for Tourism Savvas Perdios told CNA.

Perdios travelled to Sweden and Switzerland for contacts with tourist stakeholders. Cyprus is trying to replace tourist losses from Russia, the island’s second largest tourist market, due to Russia’s invasion to Ukraine and the ensuing sanctions imposed by the West against Moscow.
