The meeting discussed efforts of increasing the number of foreign tourists by issuing TPO traveller`s cards which covered all the TPO members, in addition to the exchange program for students as long-term tourism investment, joint overseas marketing, and development of the routes of cruise ships to all cities of TPO member countries.
