he achievements of the Greek Tourism in the last years have been outstanding, placing our country on the top of the of the world preference list.

We estimate that by the end of the current season more than 25 million tourists will have visited Greece, a historical record for our tourism.

From our side, these visitors are considered as our ambassadors in their countries, sharing with friends and family their experiences during their holidays in Greece, a country withunique nature, one of the richest cultures in the worldanda long history.

ible beauty, monuments of exceptional beautifulness, impressive Byzantine churches create a unique mosaic starting from ancient Greece and ending in modern Greece. And there is a lot more to be discovered in every corner of the country: outdoor activities, one of the healthiest gastronomies in the world, music and tradition and so much more that can satisfy even the most demanding of our visitors. Our infrastructure, our high quality of services and products, the promotion and support of every form of special tourism and the extension of the tourist season, combined with our famous Greek Hospitality, compose the image of our country, where ancient and modern coexist, sea and mountains are integral parts of Greek everyday life. We at the Ministry of Tourism, along with the GNTO, the private tourism sector and the Regions work together in a coordinated effort toput Greek Tourism to the place it deserves. We do believe that the positive course of our tourism will continue in the years to come, so that the benefits from such a successful outcome will be visible and measurable for our economy, our society and our private sector.

he importance of Greek tourism, as an industry that directly and indirectly employs one in six workers and contributes a fifth of the country’s GDP, cannot

be more apparent. Despite the difficult circumstances that the industry faced during 2015, by the end of the year, Greek tourism will manage to reach the targets for 26 million international arrivals and 14,5 billion Euros in direct receipts. By doing so, Greek Tourism will add 1 extra unit to GDP, supporting local economies and preserving more than 60.000 jobs.

President of the Greek Tourism Confederation

The next few years will be critical for safeguarding the competitiveness of the industry and enhancing the quality of the Greek tourism product. In collaboration with all the relative tourism authorities, SETE along with its two significant arms, Marketing Greece, a body established to represent and promote tourism throughout Greece, and the Institute of SETE which provides scientific and technical support in the promotion, training and quality of entrepreneurship in the tourism sector, supports the Greek Government in all possible ways and we will continue to contribute to the Greek economy with all of our strength.


Editorial The British love Greece!!!

T

he results of 2015, prove once again that British travelers adore Greece. Reservations for 2016 have already started, and the numbers confirm this trend. The unique Greek beauty, the variety of tourism products and the Greek hospitality, make our British friends feel literally like their home. Besides, the fact that Greece has been chosen for the celebration of AVTA‘s annual conference, confirms that Greece is the favorite destination for the British. Greece is the perfect destination for those who wish cosmopolitan holidays, or those who would like to experience the unique Greek gastronomy, or Greek nightlife, for those who desire personal service and hospitality. Greece is the perfect place for every desire and expectation. Summer 2016, will be another unique summer for the tourists who will enjoy the Greek hospitality. They will live unforgettable moments, like the ones they have dreamed of. Reservations have already started, so go for your dream! Greece is waiting for you!!!
