Tourism Ministry Message to Visitors

ATHENS – The Greek Ministry for Economy, Infrastructure, Shipping and Tourism has used social media to send messages to “reassure visitors to Greece that hotels, restaurants, shops and supermarkets have adequate food supplies.”

The text of the release, and a link to a related video follows:

“The Ministry for Economy, Infrastructure, Shipping and Tourism would like to reassure

visitors to Greece that hotels, restaurants, shops and supermarkets have adequate food

supplies, the prices of which have remained stable if not reduced as in the case of fresh fruit

and vegetables. This is also the case for fuel, as gas stations are adequately stocked and

prices remain unchanged.

Any reports stating the opposite are not reflecting the actual situation on the ground.

The Ministry for Economy via the General Secretariat for Commerce is working closely with

local authorities and food companies and has taken all the necessary steps to ensure the

supply of goods to the Greek market continues to operate as normal so that demand is

entirely covered not only for the Greek people but also for the numerous visitors who have

chosen Greece for their holidays.




ATHENS - A regulation in an omnibus bill will allow repatriated Greeks from Albania and the former Soviet Union to receive full national pensions, Labor and Social Protection Minister Kostis Hatzidakis said during a discussion in Greek Parliament on Tuesday.
