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.


… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.

Your support, no matter how small, makes a world of difference. If you can, please support us monthly starting from just $2. It's quick to set up, and you can be confident that you're making a significant impact every month by supporting open, independent journalism. Thank you.
