Melbourne a Priority for the Tourism Ministry, Kikilias Says

MELBOURNE – The Greek National Tourist Organisation (GNTO) in Melbourne is a priority for the tourism ministry, Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias stressed on Tuesday in an interview with newspaper “Neos Kosmos” in Melbourne.

He also stressed that the Greeks of Australia are the “ambassadors of tourism” there, as they can help make it known that Greece is a country “of irresistible beauty, a country where holidays acquire their true meaning”. Referring to the messages for the new year, Kikilias stressed that 2022 will be an extremely successful tourist year.

“My job is to work every day to increase the tourism product so that we have a better year for Greece. But in this tragic situation, with the loss of human lives, we put humanity, solidarity and our active support above all else,” the minister said.


For the first time, Greek voters in the homeland and the Diaspora will be able to participate in elections for the European Parliament for the first time on June 9.
