Tourism Min Theoharis on Restarting Greek Tourism

ATHENS — Greece is just days away from reopening its tourism sector to foreign visitors, Tourism Minister Haris Theoharis said at the Delphi Economic Forum on Thursday, adding that the current year cannot be compared with 2019 or judged by previous years' standards but on the basis of the efforts underway to restart the tourism season this year.

"The ministry's efforts have multiple fronts, including actions and agreements in the area of health, in the economy and in diplomacy," he said and revealed that he is to visit Israel next week with Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

Focusing on the communications planning of the campaign, he underlined that safety comes first and for this reason the ministry has created a mobile phone app, through which VisitGreece can provide foreign visitors with any information they need.

Earlier, Greek National Tourism Organisation Secretary General Dimitris Fragakis said that this year, the restart of tourism will not be a sprint but a marathon.
