The ministries of Tourism and Rural Development and Food have agreed to launch joint actions in 2014 when Greece undertakes the Presidency of the European Union. These actions are expected to benefit tourism, the primary sector and the national economy.
The aim of the cooperation is to promote high quality Greek products through tourism to strengthen the country’s tourism product and attract additional visitors.
According to the tourism ministry, the impressive variety of Greece’s local products combined with the different culinary creations of each destination, with the proper promotion, can enrich the tourism product, encourage local communities to develop activities, and support businesses, local production and the economy of each destination.
The two ministries will also cooperate on promoting agritourism and the advantages it has for visitors to Greece.
