ATHENS - Greek main opposition New Democracy Tourism Sector head Dodecanese MP Manos Konsolas met with US Ambassador to Greece Mr. Jeffrey P. Pyatt.
The meeting took place in an excellent and constructive climate of friendship, cooperation and mutual understanding.
Mr. Konsolas referred extensively to the longlasting, historic relations between the two countries, and focused especially on the need for a dynamic Greek tourism promotion in the American market with particular emphasis on the cruise sector.
Moreover, he invited the American ambassador to visit the Dodecanese islands, an invitation that was gladly accepted by Mr. Pyatt.
In a statement after the meeting, New Democracy Tourism Sector chief noted:
"Our meeting with Mr. Pyatt confirmed our common understanding on many important issues. Greece is a pole of stability in a sensitive area and seeks a close relationship and cooperation with the United States to ensure security and stability in the region based on the rules of international law. I also estimate that the time has come for a dynamic promotion of Greek tourism in the United Sates market. This requires an integrated plan with targeted policies that will not only increase the number of American tourists but also the travel receipts."
