    [02] Tourism minister in Tripoli

    Greek Tourism Development Minister Aris Spiliotopoulos was proclaimed honorary citizen of Dimitsana, during his visit on Saturday to the historic city of Tripoli.

    The minister stated that he was greatly moved by the honor ?which gives me courage to proceed even further in the country‚s tourism growth.?

    Spiliotopoulos said he was in the region ?because Dimitsana aims at attracting tourists, given that it is a pole of tourism activity.?

    The minister also noted that tourism was not affected in the Peloponnese due to the wildfires in the region last August.
