Tourism accounts for about a fifth of Greek economy

In a message to mark World Tourism Day on Saturday, Association of Hellenic Tourism Enterprises (SETE) president Andreas Andreadis estimated that tourism’s contribution to Greece’s gross domestic product has risen considerably in 2014 and will come close to 20 percent, from just over 16 percent previously.

On the same occasion Tourism Development Minister Olga Kefaloyianni called on tourism professionals to raise their quality of service even higher for next year to make 2015 another year of records.
