  • [01] Greece should be ready for a long stay of refugees in Greece, says gov't spokeswoman Gerovassili

    Greece should be prepared for a lengthy stay of refugees in the country, stated government spokeswoman Olga Gerovassili during a press briefing on Tuesday.

    She also added that the implementation of EU-Turkey agreement creates a legal corridor for the refugees to Europe.

    The government implements everything agreed and gives a battle so that the agreement is respected by all sides, she noted.

    Regarding Alternate Migration Minister Yiannis Mouzalas' issue, she said that the government has expressed its intentions. The issue will be discussed immediately after Monday's debate in parliament, said Gerovassili.

    [02] 2016 will be an excellent year for Greek tourism, Alternate Tourism Min Kountoura says

    Russian, German and British tourists have shown a special interest in visiting Greece this summer, Alternate Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura on Tuesday said in statements to Praktorio 104.9 FM.

    "It is estimated that 2016 will be an excellent year for Greek tourism," Kountoura underlined.

    She also noted that Greece has managed to establish itself as a global tourist cruise destination, and made special mention to the increase in tourism from Russia and the events to be held within the Greece - Russia year.

    As she said, in consultation with her Russian counterpart Alla Manilow, a forum will be held in Greece on May 20 with the view to promoting religious tourism.

    "The flow from Russia is expected to be very large and Ms Manilow underlined the interest of all Russian regions to visit Greece in order to recommend it to their residents," Kountoura stressed.
