All parties associated with marine tourism have been invited to submit proposals and suggestions to the ministries of tourism and shipping for preparation of a draft law to be tabled in Parliament, the Tourism Ministry said yesterday, 2 October.
Tourism Minister Olga Kefalogianni and Shipping and Aegean Minister Kostis Mousouroulis intend to form a unified strategy to upgrade the country’s tourism product and services and provide solutions to the industry’s decades-long problems.
According to the official letter signed by both ministries to marine tourism professionals, the aim of the draft law is to create a business friendly environment in Greece that could play a fundamental role in attracting high-income tourists.
“Marine tourism is among the immediate priorities of both ministries,” the press release said.
All proposals should be submitted online by Thursday, 11 October 2012.
