GOOD RETURN ON MARKETING INVESTMENT BY THE TOURISM MINISTRY AFTER OPERATION PILLAR OF DEFENSE: NIS 33 MILLION CAMPAIGN INVESTED IN ISRAEL AND OVERSEAS FOR A RETUNR OF NIS 400 MILLION FROM INCOMING TOURISM AND NIS 150 MILLION FOR DOMESTIC TOURISM
TOURISM MINISTER DR. UZI LANDAU: “Once again, the numbers prove the great value of the tourism industry; this is a direct and positive relationship: about NIS 15 of income for every shekel spent on marketing. A significant amount goes directly to the periphery and helps provide and maintain employment. The marketing activities of the ministry should be increased with the different target markets”.
