In addition, “Equilibrium Prices” model which is dual of Leontief’s “Input-output model” has been prepared for all three countries, the dependencies between the value added in the tourism sector and the level of prices have been examined, and the effect of increasing value added in the tourism sector on other areas and the level of inflation has been determined.
