Greek Tourism Min Visits Top Resa Exhibition in Paris

ATHENS — Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias is travelling to France on Monday in order to visit the Top Resa in Paris, the largest tourist exhibition in France.

Kikilias will be present on Tuesday at the official opening of the exhibition, on the sidelines of which he has planned a series of important contacts with executives of the French tourism market and representatives of public and private entities from the tourism industry.

The focus of Kikilias' meeting, as well as the one-on-one meeting with his French counterpart Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne, will be the further strengthening of bilateral relations in the field of tourism and the further promotion of Greece as a destination for the French, while contacts have already been made with a view to extending the tourist season and increasing the number of visitors to less popular destinations.

To this end, the Minister of Tourism will also meet with senior executives of Air France and Transavia, as well as with the CEO of ATOUT France, the official national agency for tourism development and promotion of France as a tourist destination, which determines its national tourism strategy.

This year's messages with respect to tourist traffic from France are very hopeful, as Greece was the first destination abroad for the French in June and July. In fact, in July, the number of French visitors to our country skyrocketed, a remarkable fact as it was the first time that a foreign destination surpassed domestic tourism in France.

The visit of the Minister of Tourism to France ends on Wednesday, October 6, when he will attend a dinner with his counterparts from the member-states of the European Union.
