Greece a top global destinationSETE, Greece’s largest tourism business association aims to make Greece one of the top ten tourist destinations in the world. SETE’s Chief Andreas Andreadis says that Greece needs a new vision for the future to beat the economic crisis, and that vision is tourism.

 

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 reach 19 to 20 billion Euros.” However, he said that it would be disastrous if Greece leaves the eurozone. Andreadis 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.”

 
Andreadis further said that tourism would help other sectors to recover, such as real estate, transport, energy, and agricultural production. “Greece will not be saved with the third, fourth, or tenth memorandum. It will be saved with a vision. The vision is for Greece to emerge as the best tourism destination worldwide, “said Andreadis.
