2010 would be the year of recovery for tourism sector, chairman of a leading tourism confederation said on Thursday.

Turkish Hoteliers' Federation (TUROFED) chairman Ahmet Barut told the A.A correspondent that Turkey's tourism sector was affected by global economic crisis less than other countries.

Barut said 27 million tourists visited Turkey and the country obtained 21 billion U.S. dollars in revenues in 2009.

"Impacts of economic crisis will also be felt this year but the Turkish tourism sector will keep growing," he said.

"Our goal is to attract 28 million tourists to Turkey in 2010 and obtain an income of 22 billion U.S. dollars," Barut said.
