10.1 million tourists visited Albania last year

Minister of Tourism and Environment Mirela Kumbaro stated today that 10.1 million tourists visited Albania last year.

At the conference for the annual work analysis of the ministry, Kumbaro said that, “We counted over 10.1 million visitors from January 1, 2023 to December 31 and I have no doubt that 2023 was the year of tourism; it became headlines”.

“The results came without doubt thanks to a very good cooperation of the private sector and the public sector. And within the public sector, there are the sectors which in one way or another either work directly for tourism such as the Ministry of Tourism and Environment with its own affiliated agencies, but there are also all government agencies at all levels, from the police to transport, from agriculture to infrastructure, that have been oriented towards tourism because that was the political priority of the government in the service and function of the tourism economy”, emphasized minister Kumbaro.
