    Exploitation of the tourism assets, investments in tourism and resolution of the problems faced by employees in the tourism industry were discussed Friday during a meeting between national economy and finance minister George Alogoskoufis and tourism development minister Dimitris Avramopoulos.

    Alogoskoufis told reporters after the meeting that tourism development was a central issue for the country, adding that a large proportion of development emanated from tourism.

    He also said that very large investments also emanated from the tourism sector.

    Alogoskoufis further said that he ahd Avramopoulos had discussed exploitation of the tourism assets, while Avramopoulos added that the basic target of both ministries was to strengthen the sector, improve the quality of services provided, and increase the revenues from tourism.

    "Throughour our close cooperation with the finance ministry, we came up against many problems and difficulties which, however, we are dealing with," Avramopoulos told reporters.

    He further said that the indicators in tourism were on the rise, and the sector's contribution to the national economy was "substantial".

    Questioned on the prospective repercussions to the sector from recent terrorist attacks (in the region), Avramopoulos said that it was only natural that terrorist attacks and natural disasters influenced the tourism market globally, but stressed that Greece was a safe country, and added that the tourist season would end without problems for Greece.
