Greece Wins Stand Award at MITT

Tourism Development Minister Fanni Palli-Petralia was on the receiving end of a pleasant surprise when she went to Moscow to open the Greek stand at the MITT 2007 international tourism exhibition: The stand -dressed in the blue of the Aegean, the white of the islands and marble, and the gold of the sunset- impressed visitors and won a prize for the best stand at the fair. Meanwhile, press reports say the number of Russians visiting Greece has doubled in recent years, and is now their fifth favorite destination, and continues to become even more popular now that the Greek Consul General in Moscow can now issue visas more promptly.

“The Russians are generous and they stand out from other tourists. For every euro they spend, the Greek economy earns two,” said Mrs Palli-Petralia during a press conference at the fair.
