Andreas Mandrinos was re-elected this week as the president of the Thessaloniki Hotels Association, following a general assembly held to elect a new board of directors.
In an announcement, Mandrinos announced the two main aims of the association following his re-election:
– promote the destination through partnerships with all healthy forces in the industry
– insist (to the relevant authorities) on the city’s improvement in the areas of safety, cleanliness and infrastructure
“We will also defend the interests of the sector, and to this end we intend to work with our trade unions and the authorities… We will also deal with the individual problems of hoteliers and resolve various issues and tackle bureaucracy,” he added.
