Tourism ties between India and Greece were recently strengthened with the signing of a memorandum of understanding between the Indian Association of Tour Operators and the Hellenic Association of Travel & Tourism Agents. The signing took place last month during the 5th World Travel & Tourism Council Global Summit held in New Delhi.
Both parties agreed on a venture to jointly promote tourism programs. The memorandum was signed by India’s Subhash Goyal and Greece’s Yiannis Evangelou on behalf of their respective associations.
Under the memorandum, the two associations would work to promote and market tourism between the two countries, and for this purpose enhance their mutual contacts and communications.
They also agreed that arrangements for travel and tour services, including hotel reservations required by members of the respective associations in the two countries, will be channeled through their respective associations only.
As well, the members of both the organizations are entitled to become overseas members of each other’s association and can use and print their respective logos.
The two associations also agreed to cooperate in the development of human resources.
Further, both have also arranged to form a joint action committee to discuss strategies for the development of their cooperation programs. The committee will meet once a year, and will form sub-committees for the implementations of specific programs.
