Ankara will allocate $85 million to support the tourism sector, announced Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu. He complained about the lack of tourists from Russia. According to him, tourism should not become the object of sanctions.

Prime Minister Ahmet Davutoglu acknowledged that the tourism sector of the country is in trouble due to strained relations with Russia. He said that Ankara is ready to allocate 255 million Turkish liras (around 85 million dollars) to support the tourist sector. Moreover, Turkish authorities are ready to agree on debt restructuring for tourist companies if necessary.

From April 1st to May 31st Ankara will pay all local and foreign travel agencies six thousand dollars for every plane full of tourists. Agencies which will bring more than 400 thousand tourists will receive support in loan repayment of approximately $33 million.

At the same time Davutoglu stressed that Turkey “will continue to fight terrorism inside and outside the country and all who deserve it, will receive a corresponding answer”.
