Azerbaijan, Baku, Sept. 23 /Trend, E. Tariverdiyeva/
A major PR-campaign for the promotion of Georgian tourism has started in Azerbaijan, the head of Georgian National Tourism Administration Giorgi Sigua told journalists in Baku on Monday.
"Azerbaijan is a main target market. On September 22, we started a campaign for the promotion of Georgian tourism in Baku, covering all social networks and using media resources, but in the future, we will expand the geography of our PR-campaign to cover the country's provincial areas," he said.
According to him, Georgia can offer many memorable experiences.
Sigua said that from the point of view of climate, Georgia is unique, because one small area combines several different climactic zones.
"The nature of Georgia is almost untouched; there are plenty of opportunities to contemplate the magnificent nature and carry out eco-tourism activities. The wine and cuisine adds another attractive side of the trip to our country," he said.
According to the head of the National Administration, the landscape of Georgia allows sports tourism activities both in the mountains and on the water.
Georgia's health resorts, including the famous resort of Borjomi are of great interest to tourists, Sigua said.
He also said that Georgia is the only country in the region where gambling is not banned, and this country has some excellent world class casinos.
"Our country has become a platform for various international events, having the necessary level of infrastructure," he said.
According Sigua, Georgia cooperates with Azerbaijan in tourism within GUAM and the Black Sea Economic Cooperation (BSEC). Besides, he added, that joint working groups are also working on this issue. .
"The flow of tourists from Azerbaijan is growing every day. In 2012 our country was visited by more than 4,428 million people, whereas over the first eight months of this year the flow was more than 3,568 million people, which makes it possible to hope that this year the number of tourists from Azerbaijan will exceed five million people," Sigua said.
