The growth in demand for holidays in Greece from most countries over the past two years, as is indicated by the notable increase in arrivals, raises further expectations for the future of Greek tourism.

Yiannis Evangelou

During the last two years, Greek tourism has entered a phase of great improvement. However, we must not rely completely on these positive developments. All of us, the state, local government, and businessmen are responsible for the positive developments, and any possible negative...

Andreas A. Andreadis

The general impression today is that tourism on an international level is exceptionally dynamic and filled with promise. This sector's development rate has risen steadily over the past three years and it is expected that in the next years, it will be further strengthened,...

Stelios Polykratis

It is a fact that today competition in tourism must be centered on quality and not cost and what we mean by quality is not only those elements an accommodation can offer, but also the quality of the destination that contributes significantly to our being able to stimulate the...

Philoxenia, just as all of the world's tourism exhibitions and shows, is a very important tool for professionals in tourism. It allows trade professionals from all over the world to meet, discuss and to get to know each other, yet, at the same time, this exhibition creates an...

Yiannis Evangelou

Tourism movement to Greece was positive this year, especially after the first half, and initial indications for next year are very good. However, we must, on both a national and local level, ensure this tourism increase continues at a steady pace keeping in mind the strong...

Greece is among the most classic of national tourism destinations. Tourism is a major economic activity and contributes to financial growth, regional employment and the redistribution of natural wealth more than any other productive activity.

Philoxenia, just as all of the world's tourism exhibitions and shows, consists of a very important tool for professionals in tourism. It allows trade professionals from all over the world to meet, discuss and to get to know each other, yet, at the same time, this exhibition...

Panagiotis Bamides

After some very difficult years, we have finally seen some light at the end of the tunnel, and next year looks like it may be a good year. Nonetheless, the past has shown how important it is for Greece to introduce the 'satellite accounts' method for tourism statistics. This...

Tsampikos Moschatos

With the close of the century, tourism has become the world's biggest industry. No other sector of the economy can replace it because except for the fact that it drives all other sectors of the economy, tourism investments have immediate results. Tourism also creates jobs and...

Anastasios Liaskos

Tourism has been developing as a strong financial base of our national economy. Meanwhile, competition increases worldwide in this modern "tourist era" and new destinations make grand entrances into the tourism market. Thus, the improvement of quality for the development of the...

Dimitris Avramopoulos

Tourism is not only our major sector for economic development, but it is also a sector with major social benefits. Our new tourism strategy, which we intend to implement shortly, covers all of Greece and has year-round tourism as its main aim with an emphasis given to alternate...

Haris Kokkosis

Greece boasts one of the richest ecosystems in Europe, boasts 40 centuries of cultural heritage and is a safe and friendly destination for all tourists. With the latter in mind, our basic aim is the quality improvement of our tourism product along with the development of...

Gerasimos Fokas

With the successful organization of the Athens 2004 Olympic Games, we have entered a new era where Greece, and the Greek tourism sector in particular, has had the red carpet of opportunity laid before it. The Games have strengthened our image abroad and once more Greece has...

Marios Trivizas

Greek tourism showed a serious decline in 2004, with arrivals dropping from 6-8% in almost all destinations, with the exception of Athens. If we consider revenues, we estimate that the decrease is even higher, taking into account lower prices and special offers made by all...

Yiannis Evangelou

We live in a world where everything quickly changes on the world tourism stage with new tourism products, new consumer trends and increased international competition. Recent problems confronted by the tourism industry forced all, but particularly airlines and travel agents, to...

Marios Trivizas

Unfortunately, we see no change towards the better for incoming tourism next year. Last year, and the year before, incoming dropped five percent and six percent respectively and for this year we foresee as much as a fifteen-percent drop in arrivals. The drop in arrivals from...

Dino Frantzeskakis

The future of Greek Tourism can be bright only if all components which make up this complex services industry agree to a unified medium and long-term strategy. Instead of paying lip service only, both state and private sectors could agree on a joint policy towards upgrading...

Vassilis Minaides

Independent of the present pessimistic climate within the tourism sector, mostly because this is the third consecutive year we've seen a drop in foreign arrivals and the price of our product, the prospects for tourism remain good. Our country remains an internationally recognized...
