Get the goss on Greece this Tuesday

Greek Minister of Tourism will outline the country’s summer strategy during a zoom presentation on Tuesday night.

Vasilis Kikilias will host a number of media representatives to discuss the importance of tourism for the country’s economy and the investments that will be made to improve the industry.

Tourism is one of the country’s main business activities and as such, it is a key revenue generator that not only supports Greek families but can also play a key role in Greece’s post-Covid19 recovery.

The Minister will talk about the link between trade and tourism and how important it is for Greece, as it contributes 1 in 4 euros directly or indirectly to the Greek economy and therefore to the Greek family.

He will outline his strategies that support traditional and dynamic branches of business activity and efforts which are being made at the same time to attract new investments in key sectors of the Greek economy which will give impetus to tourism, as well as to strengthen infrastructure and preserve the quality of the offered tourist product associated with the country’s carrying capacity.

Lastly, the Minister will discuss the importance of EU and national recovery funds that will go into crucial infrastructure projects, including destination management initiatives, the development of mountain tourism, agro-tourism, wellness and health tourism, gastronomy, port and marina upgrades, and works that will ensure visitor accessibility.

Kikilias has been a member of the Hellenic Parliament since 2012. He has also served as Minister of Health and Minister of Public Order and Protection as a member of the New Democracy political party.

The presentation will take place on Tuesday 13 April at 18:00 – 19:00 AEST (NSW, ACT, Vic, Tas, Qld), 11.00 -12.00 EEST (Athens time)
