The trend is expected to last, Marinov said.A series of EU-financed tourist projects of the Ministry are expected to push up the number of tourists and to improve the geographic distribution of the tourist flow in the country.The 36-month tourism promotion project is worth 7,897,000 leva. It is aimed at enhancing the effectiveness of national marketing activities for advertising and promoting the national tourist product on the domestic and international markets.
