The Alternate Minister of Economy, Development and Tourism of Greece, Elena Kountoura, was in New York earlier this week in order to participate in an investment conference and, at the same time, to develop contacts with major tourism stakeholders of the American metropolis, further promoting the Greek tourist product.

In an interview, Elena Kountouras stated that her ministry’s goal is to extend the tourist season throughout the year and to systematically develop thematic tourism.

She noted that Greece expects a record for arrivals and tourist revenues for 2015 (the final figure is expected to surpass 25.5 million visitors by year’s end), providing immensely important economic benefits for the country.

Declaring Greece to be the safest destination in the region, Mrs Kountouras pointed out that the refugee crisis is a matter of concern, not only for her nation, but for Europe and the whole world.
