Georgia Seeks Tourism

The Georgian government forecasts an annual influx of as many as 5 million tourists — more than the Black Sea country's population — by 2015, the economy and sustainable development minister said.

Georgia attracted 675,000 visitors through April, up 43 percent from the year-earlier period, Vera Kobalia said in an interview Thursday in the capital Tbilisi. For the full year 2010, the former Soviet republic drew more than 2 million visitors.

The Georgian National Investment Agency has been successful in finding investors interested in taking part in the construction of a Black Sea resort at Anaklia, she said.
