SETE million tourists in GreeceBy 2021, visitor number to Greece is expected to go up to 35 million a year. Tourism revenues are expected to range between 19 and 20 billion Euros, contributing 6 or 7% of gross domestic product. This was said by SETE President Andreas Andreadis to Greece Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras during a meeting at Maximos Mansion yesterday.

The Greek PM said that 35 million visitor arrivals is a realistic target for Greece this year and added that it would depend on international events. SETE officials said that this season could register a record reaching up to 28 million visitors.

The latest report by the World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) showed that ranked among 30 European countries, Greece posted the fourth worst performance in tourism takings last year. The Greek PM spoke in favor of drafting a Special Zoning Plan for Tourism and asked for an inquiry into the delays in taxing unlicensed short-term rentals advertised on sites like Airbnb and Wimdu. Andreadis and Tsipras agreed to have a working dinner in the next few days.
