The Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) and the non-profit and voluntary organization A Discovering Network asbl (ADN asbl) will present tourist information about Greece and Greek traditional products during a three-day Christmas event in Belgium. The event takes place on November 30-December 2 at the Schuman Square in the center of Brussels, the Belgian capital.
