Greek Hoteliers View Gov’t Measures Positively, Tassios Says

ATHENS – Τhe hotel industry takes a positive view of the support measures for tourism that the government has announced (eg reduction of VAT to 13 pct on transport – food, additional and flexible financial tools for businesses, employment support), the president of Panhellenic Hoteliers Federation, Grigoris Tassios, said on Thursday. He emphasised, however, that there is still a long way to go in order to clarify issues such as health protocols, abolition of overnight stay tax and the reduction of VAT on accommodation to 6 pct.

"[It is] the first substantial step for curbing the recession and looking at the future of tourism," he said, while referring to the resumption of flights on July 1, he said there was concern over which countries Greece will get tourists from this year.
