  • [01] Measures for tourism

    The measures pledged by the prime minister, ones aimed at boosting the tourism sector, will be strictly implemented, new Tourism Development Minister Costas Markopoulos stressed during a press conference on Tuesday, pointing out that the 14 specific measures recently announced will soon be implemented.

    Commending on projected tourism figures for the coming season, Markopoulos said no accurate predictions can be made as regards the number of tourist arrivals, considering that pre-bookings have been put off for two months to March and April as a result of the global economic crisis.

    Speaking to reporters, the minister said the draft law will include 14 such as cutting municipal taxes and transforming the Hotel Chamber into a Tourism Chamber.

    Markopoulos said the ministry also plans to table another draft law to Parliament, by September, envisaging stricter supervision of casino operations and the upgrading of the Greek National Tourism Organisation's (GNTO) offices abroad, with the ministry planning to open new offices in South Africa, Poland, Ukraine and India.

    The minister said funds for this year's international ad campaign will be 50 pct higher compared with 2008, while an international promotions campaign will use the same logo and will focus on specific markets.
