For Greece tourism, Minister calls for 10 year plan

Published on : Saturday, July 27, 2019

Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis called over tourism as one of the most vital sectors in which Greece benefits from significant comparative advantages over its rival destinations. The minister has called for a 10-year plan that would boost competitiveness, innovation and sustainability.

 

“A tourism product whose top priority is not environmental protection is inconceivable for Greece today,” Mitsotakis explained in a meeting on Thursday with officials at the Tourism Ministry in Athens, in which he gave them a six-month deadline to arrange a strategic plan.

 

“We want the private sector, which has propped up tourism throughout the crisis, to be involved,” Mitsotakis said, emphasizing that tourism authorities will have to work with other ministries in order to “implement significant strategic initiatives.”

 

“Our job is to make sure that things which have never been done before are finally done. That’s why we need clear timelines and clear goals,” the prime minister said.

 

For his part, Tourism Minister Haris Theocharis highlighted the requirement for regulations to “bring some order” to the short-term rental market, which has exploded all over Greece in recent years, but also steps to bolster tourism professionals with better education options.
