“I am very pleased so far with revenues from the tourism sector because it is a key measure of financial indicators of a successful business. Revenue growth in the tourism sector, especially in hotels and restaurants is certainly a positive sign before the season, but also for the overall tourist year. Investments play an important role in achieving positive financial growth, and I invite the entire tourism sector to continue to invest in improving quality and services in their facilities because now is the right time to have a better quality and more competitive tourism industry.“, said Minister of Tourism Darko Lorencin.
The biggest gains were made in the hotel and private accommodation sector (+55%), campsites (+58%) followed by food and drinks (+9%), and restaurants (+4%).
