As the vaccination campaign goes forward, the Albanian government has made its priority to support the tourism sector, which suffered a severe blow from the pandemic.
The government has accorded an extra fund of €820.000 for the tourism development program as it eyes to open its doors to tourists.
The decision was taken during a Council of Ministers meeting on Wednesday. The fund aims to promote Albania in other countries as an attractive COVID Free destination.
In 2020, there were 3.8 million fewer people entering the country from the year before due to pandemic-related measures and quarantine rules.
According to government data, tourism contributes approximately €1 billion to the country’s GDP, and over 290.000 citizens are employed in the sector.
