The number of holiday-makers choosing Lithuania as their destination is falling, yet, there are increasingly more and more business tourists in the country, which allows expecting a modest growth in the sector in the upcoming 6 months, a Tourism Confidence Index compiled by the Confederation of Lithuanian Industrialists shows.

The index rate for the first 6 months of 2015 stands at 66.2 points.

"Expectations in the tourism sector are not bad, trends are optimistic. We expect to see a growth, although rather modest. Compared to a study conducted half a year ago, the index rate has improved by 5.3 percent," said Ugnė Radžiūnaitė from the Confederation of Lithuanian Industrialists.

It is predicted that due to a falling number of Russian tourists Lithuania's tourism sector will lose about EUR 6 million. The majority of incoming travellers are expected from Norway.
