It has been noted that there is a great decrease in the numbers of British, German and Scandinavian tourists who visit South Cyprus.

The newspaper wrote that there is a decrease in the general number of tourists from all other countries except from Russia and indicated that this situation is related to the 50 percent reduction in the budget allocated to the Greek Tourism Organization (KOT) since 2009.
