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.
