Minister Nikolova: Germany is in the top 3 markets for incoming tourism in Bulgaria

The German-Bulgarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce will be our partner and ambassador in terms of information exchange related to the security of the citizens of Germany traveling to our country for tourism purposes. This became clear today during a meeting of Deputy Prime Minister Mariyana Nikolova with Dr. Mitko Vasilev, Governor of the German-Bulgarian Chamber of Industry and Commerce. Our overall goal is that the information arrives on time and correctly to the institutions in Germany - the German Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Robert Koch Institute, responsible for publishing information related to COVID-19 when travelling German citizens abroad in the coming months, reported by press center of the Ministry of Tourism.
Partners in the implementation of the communication will be large German companies, as well as members of the Bulgarian Union of Balneology and SPA Tourism, for which the German market is key.

According to Minister Nikolova, Germany is traditionally among the leading trade and economic partners of our country and falls into the top 3 markets for incoming tourism in Bulgaria. Our country is recognizable by German guests as a very good place for rest and active recreation, with high quality of services and reasonable prices, she added.

Deputy Prime Minister Nikolova reminded that Bulgaria develops numerous marketing campaigns on the German market by advertising the various niche tourism products offered by Bulgaria. Of course, we will expect German tourists to visit our beautiful and sunny seaside resorts this summer, she added. He added that this year the season will be opened on 1 May, and today my order introduced uniform rules for anti-epidemic and sanitary measures in tourist sites on the occasion of the upcoming summer season 2021.

For her part, the governor of the chamber Dr. Mitko Vasilev thanked Minister Nikolova for the outstretched hand. At the moment no country does advertising in the sun, but how the country is ready to welcome guests, he said. And he added that with joint efforts we could correspond with the state institutions and achieve results. Our voice is heard, so the new rules you have issued will bring them down as quickly as possible to the knowledge of German citizens and institutions, Vasilev further clarified. This partnership of ours will be a great continuation of our already good relationships and working together, he was adamant.
