The beginnings of a return to normalcy in the tourism sector are expected in March 2016, Minister of Tourism, Salma Elloumi announced Sunday.
She added, in a statement to TAP news agency on the sidelines of a visit to the governorate of Tozeur there are several positive indicators without providing figures, noting that no accurate statistics are currently available.
These signs must, in her view, be valued through greater efforts of different stakeholders, including professionals in the tourism sector who have to improve and diversify the tourism product.
Elloumi stressed the importance of cultural events in the new tourism promotion strategy to ensure the revival of tourism.
She noted, in this context, that agreement has been reached with the committee of the Tozeur International Oases Festival, the Federation of Travel Agencies (FTAV) and the Tunisian Federation of Hotels (FTH) to schedule and finance cultural events.
