GNTO’s Fragakis: 2022 Signalled a Full Comeback of the Country’s Most Important Productive Activity

January 20, 2023

DAVOS – The general director of the Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO) Dimitris Fragakis was in Davos, Switzerland to participate the annual meeting of the World Economic Forum (WEF).

Fragakis was present during the interview given by Greek Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis on Thursday and also had a series of meetings. He met with senior executives of major foreign media networks, such as the Wall Street Journal and Bloomberg, while he took part in a meeting with Manchester United football club officials to discuss possible cooperation and smart ways to promote Greece and its tourism abroad. He also addressed the Greek House forum, with dozens of top executives of the global tourism industry attending.

“Greece has come up against multiple crises that had an impact on tourism in the last 3.5 years. However, with a very cohesive plan drawn up by the Mitsotakis government, we managed to not only keep our tourism sector on its feet but to turn it into a leader of developments in an extremely uncertain environment. The year 2022 was the new milestone-year, which signalled a full comeback for the most important productive activity of the country and also paved the way for the future,” Fragakis underlined.
