  • [01] Alternate Tourism Minister Kountoura has series of meetings in the US to promote Greek tourism

    Alternate Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura, during her visit to New York, met with Archbishop of America Dimitrios who referred to the importance of tourism for Greece and the country's development.

    On her part, Kountoura thanked him for his significant support to promoting Greek tourism in the US and the Greek Diaspora.

    They also discussed the possibilities of increasing the flow of Greek-American tourists to Greece, the development of religious tourism and the contribution of the Archdiocese to the national strategy of the ministry to promote Greece as an important tourist Christian Center.

    The Minister had separate meetings with Senators, leading investors, as well as presidents and representatives of organizations and associations, including the HABA (Hellenic American Bankers Association) and Hellenic Medical Society (for medical tourism).

    Kountoura also met with major tour-operators, representatives of tourism companies and organizations based in the US, as well as American and Diaspora media for the promotion of Greek tourism.

    [02] Political stability more important than tax system for businesses, says Deputy Foreign Minister Amanatidis

    Greek and foreign companies transferring their activities from Greece to Bulgaria and other countries in the region "is not so much a question of taxation as political stability," said Deputy Foreign Minister Ioannis Amanatidis in statements to "Praktorio 104.9 FM."

    Amanatidis also estimated that the lifting of capital controls will clear obstacles and the serious difficulties and stressed the importance of a stable tax system.

    Regarding the social security reforms, he said that this is an issue of discussions which are made with the employees and reassured that main pensions will not be reduced.

    "There have to be solutions that will provide for solidarity and safeguard pensions," he added.
