  • [01] Greek tourists visiting Turkey rose by 40 percent this year, Greek and Turkish tourism ministers note after meeting in Istanbul

    Istanbul (ANA/A. Kourkoulas) -- The number of Greek tourists who have visited Turkey jumped by 40 percent this year, Turkey's culture and tourism minister Attila Koc and Greece's visiting tourism development minister Dimitris Avramopoulos said Saturday in Istanbul, after a meeting on the sidelines of an event organised by the Turkish Touristic Hotels and Investors Association (TUROB).

    The two ministers, speaking to the press, stated their desire for investments in the tourism sector, and stressed that the two peoples "are not only friends, they are not only trade partners, but they have shared a common history and common fate".

    Avramopoulos said that tourism would help the two peoples to get to know each other better. "We do not consider tourism as only a commercial activity, but also an activity that provides an opportunity for the two peoples to get to know each other better. There is no geographical distance between Turkey and Greece, only a psychological distance. We do not consider Turkey an opponent in the sector of tourism, but a partner and friend," the Greek minister said.

    Koc, in turn, noted that since 2002 to the present, a total of 25 protocols and agreements have been signed (for cooperation in the tourism sector).

    The meeting was also attended by Turkish local government authorities and president of the Greek National Tourism Organisation (GNTO, or EOT) Aristides Kalogeropoulos.
