However, in September 2020 the number of arrivals of visitors from abroad to Bulgaria was 563.7 thousand or by 56.2% less in comparison with September 2019 year, specifies in. Labor.

Out of the total number of foreigners who visited Bulgaria in September 2020, the share of citizens from the European Union was 52.9% or 62.1% less compared to the same month of the previous year.

There's something wrong with this statistic. Parity has been obtained between our citizens traveling abroad and foreigners coming to Bulgaria for tourism purposes. How are we not attractive when we didn't even get them in their nose or throat for tests? While - on the contrary - Bulgarians subjected themselves to good faith intervention, and for a fee, to rest in Halkidiki or in Turkey.

Here is a question of increased difficulty about the factors on which tourism in Bulgaria depends. Or, probably, the processes are such that there is no need for these factors. Who, on top of that, are also on budget support, spend money on advertisements, on national promotions, write projects under European programmes, etc.

It turns out that things are as they are. With or without ministry, clerks and campaigns. Alas, let them refute us, but there's no way.
