Greek tourism in 2013
International arrivals and tourism revenue in Greece are surpassing even the most optimistic forecasts as the latest figures suggest that Greece is preparing for a record year in tourism this year with 2013 expected to end with 17.5 million visitors and 11.5 billion euros in tourism receipts.
“2014 may be an even better year for Greek tourism. A better year for Greece,” Mrs. Kefalogianni said at a recent conference in Athens.
