Athens tourism should grow unless stability is threatened

The number of international tourists visiting Athens will continue to grow in 2015 provided that stability and a sense of security in Greece can be maintained, Athens Mayor Giorgos Kaminis told a press conference marking the opening of the third annual Travel Trade Athens on Monday.

The event has drawn 88 foreign professionals and 190 suppliers from Athens and the rest of the country.

Kaminis said a record 3,000 meetings were arranged between Greek and foreign professionals, opening new avenues for the capital’s tourism economy.
