  • [01] Greece, Russia: Tourism cooperation

    MOSCOW (ANA-MPA/Th. Avgerinos) - Tourism Development Minister Aris Spiliotopoulos and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Strzhalkovsky agreed during their meeting here over the weekend to the preparation soon of a memorandum on tourism cooperation between Greece and Russia, with emphasis being placed on Russian investments in the Greek tourism industry and on Greek investments in the construction of marinas along the Black Sea coastline and the building of ships and pleasure boats.

    "We agreed to run with specific working groups to enable us to have over a short period of time a cooperation memorandum that will cover issues related to Greek investments in Russia and to Russian investments in the tourism sector in Greece, with the further strengthening of tourist and investing movement towards Greece," Spiliotopoulos said at the end of his talks.

    The Russian side requested Greek assistance and know-how for the modernisation of the Russian river boat and cruiseship fleet, a branch that is very developed as a form of tourist entertainment in Russia.

    Spiliotopoulos assured that every possible cooperation in this sector will be encouraged as well and announced that Russia will be participating again in the Philoxenia exhibition in Thessaloniki, while Greece will be the theme country next year in Moscow's blossoming Intourmarket tourism exhibition, which is held under the auspices and backing of the Russian government.

    Spiliotopoulos left for Saint Petersburg on Sunday evening, where he will be inaugurating a Greek tourism poster exhibition on Monday, while on Tuesday he will be giving a lecture at the University's Greek department and meeting the city's governor and former ambassador in Athens Valentina Matvienko.
