Tourist arrivals seen jumping 10 percent

The number of tourists expected to visit Greece this year is seen increasing by 10 percent compared to last year, with growth coming from Russia, the UK and Germany, according to Andreas Andreadis, president of the Panhellenic Federation of Hoteliers.

However, the number of Greeks going on holiday within the country is expected to see a double-digit drop due to the crisis, Andreadis told Kathimerini, reducing income in the sector by 3 to 4 percent.
