Abstract

The paper stresses the importance of the introduction of the Tourism Satellite Account (TSA) in Georgia, describes the development stages of the system of tourism statistics for this purpose and identifies the recent weaknesses of the system. Furthermore, based on the recently created experimental TSA tables 1-4, the paper identifies the most affected tourism sectors by COVID-19 and estimates one of the main indicators of TSA - tourism direct gross domestic product in 2019 to equal 5,431 MM Gel with a share in GDP of 12.6%.
