Minister Avcı emphasized that Turkey is not just about sea, sand and the sun. "We came to these days as the tourism campaign initiated by the late Turgut Özal in the 1980s will be the 6th biggest destination of the world by saying sea, sand and sun. With only sea, sand, sun, coastal tourism, Turkey really came to an important place. We are 4th in Europe and 6th in the world. But Turkey is not just sea, sand, and sun as seen in the example of Adıyaman and Gaziantep. In all the types of tourism that you can think of, Turkey has an extraordinary potential from east to west, from north to south. We have not been far away from the sea, sand, sun, until today. "
