ICC Women Hellas also works to support the efforts of women and men, tourism entrepreneurs and employees to confront the challenges of the post-Covid-19 era.
“I am ready to support the many, dynamic women who lead or work in tourism. Together with ICC Women Hellas, we will bring the harmony required for new achievements in the sector, which is the pillar of our economy,” Angela Gerekou said.
During her speech, the GNTO’s president focused on the “next day” for Greek tourism after the Covid-19 crisis.
