The meeting took place a few weeks after Minister Kountoura met with Italy’s minister for cultural heritage, activities and tourism, Dario Francescini, during the Greece-Italy High-level Cooperation Council, which was held in September on Corfu. Kountoura had then proposed the reactivation of the Greece-Italy Joint Tourism Committee to strengthen bilateral tourism activities between the two countries.
