According to the Secretary General of the Greek Tourism Ministry, Evridiki Kourneta, the ministry plans to upgrade both tourism schools of higher education ASTER and ASTEK (Crete) and the eight vocational (IEK) tourism training schools.

Moreover, Kourneta said that the school for tourist guides would reopen and that the ministry is currently working on the final legislation.
