Kikilias to Le Monde: Greece Next Campaign Will Focus On Sustainable Tourism

ATHENS – Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias said that the next tourism campaign will focus on sustainable tourism, in statements to Le Monde newspaper.

In a Le Monde’s story on the huge travel flows to Greece this year and on the future challenges, Kikilias noted that a strategic plan is being promoted for ensuring tourism’s sustainability and the prevention of negative repercussions for the residents and the environment. He specifically referred to the island of Tilos, which is 100 pct energy independent most of the time, due to the installment of solar panels and wind turbines.

“There are 124 islands in Greece that you can visit and a lot of destinations on the Greek mainland. The possibilities are endless and the economic choices unlimited”, he said and expressed his satisfaction with the current season, adding that “in September and October tourist flows remain high. Our aim is to extend the tourism season in order for the citizens to benefit from tourism revenues throughout the year”.
