For the period July 18-29, 2011, an information tour for representatives of Japanese travel agencies took place, organised by tour operators of the GUAM member states, which have been participating in the development of joint GUAM-Japan tourist product. The event was aimed at promoting the tourism-related potential of the GUAM countries and stimulating Japanese tourists’ interest in visiting any of the GUAM member states.

Within the framework of the informational tour, representatives of five Japanese travel companies visited the main attractions in the Republic of Azerbaijan, Georgia, the Republic of Moldova, and Ukraine. The results of the info tour, as well as issues in relation to the organisation and conducting of the press tour for interested representatives of the Japanese mass media holdings will be considered at the next meeting of the GUAM Working Group on Tourism.
