Neighbouring countries show greater interest in holidaying in Slovenia
Ljubljana, 31 January - LDS/JAKIČ/TOURISM
Tourism in Slovenia experienced growth again last year for the first time since the beginning of independence. The country became a member of the World Tourist Organisation (WTO) and of the Network of Tourism Representatives. Slovenia has 8 tourist offices in Europe and in New York. Compared to 1990, when the industry recorded 7,950,000 overnight stays, the total recorded by the end of November last year (5,122,000) was considerably smaller. The foreign currency turnover, however, was much the same in both years, at approximately $ US 800 million, said the state secretary for tourism at the Ministry of Economic Affairs and chairman of the Piran Municipal Council of the Liberal Democratic Party (LDS), Marjan Jakič, at a regular LDS press conference on Monday.
