Tourism Vouchers “A Breather” for Samos, N. Evia, Say Hoteliers

ATHENS – The ‘Greek4ForYou’ campaign will continue in 2022 and also in 2023, said Deputy Tourism Minister Sophia Zacharaki on Saturday.

The campaign concerns the promotion of Chios, Lesvos, Leros, Samos and Kos, Greece’s islands that received the bulk of the migration influx in recent years.

This will be pursued “with a special tourist promotion program abroad, as well as in the Greek market, with funding from the Ministry of Migration & Asylum, in combination with targeted social tourism programs and vouchers, as well as coordinated actions with municipalities and regional authorities; we want a solid basis for the recovery and the sustainable tourism development of the affected areas in our country,” Zacharaki noted.

Meanwhile, the presidents of regional hotel associations told Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA-MPA) on Saturday that the recent 300- and 150-euros tourism vouchers have given a very significant boost to this year’s tourism traffic in Samos and north Evia.
