Greece is seeing a strong tourism and investment interest from the Israeli market, according to Greek Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias.
In Israel on an official visit, Minister Kikilias attended the opening ceremony of this year’s International Mediterranean Tourism Market (IMTM) trade show in Tel Aviv on Tuesday.
While inaugurating the stand of the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO), the Greek tourism minister said that following meetings at IMTM 2022, the Israeli market is showing a “strong tourism and investment interest” for Greece.
“We are a safe country that our Israeli friends will visit this year to multiple airline destinations from Tel Aviv. We will welcome them in our cities and islands and they will have many possibilities and opportunities to visit magical destinations,” the minister said.
Kikilias’ agenda in Israel includes meetings with Israeli Tourism Minister Yoel Razvozov, Israeli investors, executives of the Israeli tourism market and representatives of airlines and tour operators.
On Monday, Kikilias met with Patriarch Theophilos III of Jerusalem at the Patriarchate of Jerusalem and visited the Church of the Holy Sepulchre.
In its 28th edition, IMTM is Israel’s largest annual professional trade show that aims to promote incoming, domestic and outgoing tourism and to strengthen cooperation among the sector’s bodies in the country and over the world.
