Greece’s largest tourism business association (SETE) is looking forward to make the country among the top 10 tourist destinations in the world. It was declared by its chief Andreas Andreadis at the Delphi Economic Forum, taking place at European Cultural Centre of Delphi.
To quote Andreadis, “SETE has submitted a road map for the Greece of 2021 to all relevant authorities so that the number of visitors to our country can reach 35 million and revenues 19 to 20 billion Euros.” He further said, “If Greece returns to the drachma we will have millions of tourists but Greeks will be [living] in a ghetto, behind a wall that will separate them from the tourist areas, in the logic of the Caribbean. It would be an absolute disaster. Our aim is for visitors and locals to live well together.”
He said that growth and prosperity will come when Greeks have a clear vision for tomorrow and successfully implement the vision. Andreadis stated that tourism will help recover other sectors like real estate, agricultural production, transport, energy etc.
