we should be clear about price-product and quality
Emphasizing that the desire for travel has increased in the world and this is reflected in the demand, Erkan Yağcı said the following about what Turkey should do:
“In the surveys, the only obstacle to travel in 2022 and beyond was economic conditions. Demand is rising, but we have to act according to the facts. We should discuss the evaluations such as whether we are good or bad together as much as necessary and the facts. The rules of the game are changing and Turkey has to be clear. When we say clarity, it is what we will do about price-product and quality. Yes, there is already demand. Prices should not be played with unnecessarily. The strong coordination that our ministry and industry have shown since 2019 should not go to waste. We think that the value of these studies will continue to contribute to Turkey’s perception of value.”
