Turkey was among top ten countries in the tourism sector in the world, the culture minister said.
Culture and Tourism Minister Ertugrul Gunay said that the number of tourists visiting Turkey reached 27 million in 2009 and it was a great achievement.
The world suffered from a serious economic crisis in 2008 and 2009 and its effects still continued in several European countries, he said.
7.5 million tourists visited Istanbul in 2009 and the city should attract 15 million within next five years, he said.
