Fact-finding about selected tourism destinations in Europe – their offers and marketing tools – is the main objective of a 10-day visit by 27 Japanese tourism representatives who arrived in Slovakia on March 5, SLOVAKIA was told by Dárius Bosjak of Slovak Economy Ministry's PR department.

During their first three-day stay in Slovakia, the delegation was received at the Economy Ministry by State Secretary Ivan Rybárik and tourism section general-director Gabriel Kuliffay. Japanese Ambassador to Slovakia Makoto Washizu and Head of Mission Satoshi Iwamura were also present.

The Japanese delegation plans to use the stay in the countries of the old continent to find opportunities to increase the number of Europeans visiting Japan. It inquired about conditions and developments in tourism in Slovakia and Rybárik informed them about legislative norms and revealed Slovakia's initiatives to make tourism one of the country's main economic growth areas.

Japanese tourism representatives will also sightsee Bratislava's historical centre and visit a mining museum in Banská Štiavnica (Banská Bystrica region) on March 6.
