The article underlines the fact that tourism is an important economic activity in most countries around the world and it also is an integral part of international economic relations. The importance of the tourism is growing and directly referred to relations between states, social, educational, economic spheres. The Georgian National Tourism Administration is now putting an emphasis on quality over quantity. This is all part of the Georgian National Tourism Strategy 2025. The aim is to attract a higher spending segment of tourist, and the increasing number of Russian and Middle Eastern visitors is the result of these activities. This article discusses the national tourism development strategy that is an instrument to develop further the sector in order to take full advantages of Georgia’s potential and position as a rich, diversified and high quality destination. financial resources obtained from tourism cannot be reflected in the country's economy, since Georgia has almost no domestic production and eventually it comes out that foreign tourists, while visiting Georgia finance the economy of other countries.
