Also present at the opening of the travel and tourism exhibition was the Turkish Minister for Culture and Tourism Nabi Avci, the Governor of Istanbul Vasip Sahin and the Mayor of Metropolitan Istanbul Kadir Topbas and the UN World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) Secretary- General Taleb Rifai.

Following the opening ceremony, Ataoglu and the Turkish Minister Avci came together with sector representatives at the TRNC pavilion.

Speaking to reporters, Ataoglu said that “the TRNC is offering a wider range of tourism packages to consumers.” He added that “the TRNC had more to offer than beach tourism. The new tourism areas include sports, health and culture”.

“Pointing out that the TRNC’s tourism sector has become competitive over the past few years, Ataoglu said that the high occupancy rate in the country’s hotels is proof of this.

Representatives from the Cyprus Turkish Tourism and Travel Agencies Association (KITSAB), the North Cyprus Hoteliers Association (KITOB), the Cyprus Turkish Tour Guides Association (KITREB) and the North Cyprus Health Tourism Council are taking part in the four day fair.
