Greek Tourism Organisation sets eyes on Iran market
The Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) is setting eyes on Iran market in view of the forthcoming visit of Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras to the Iranian capital and the participation of GNTO in the Tehran International Tourism Exhibition (T.I.T.E) to be held on February 16-19.
The Secretary General of GNTO Dimitris Tryfonopoulos will visit Tehran on January 28 and 29. Tryfonopoulos will meet with his counterpart in Iran and other government officials of the tourism sector in the country.
The Secretary General and representatives of the Greek Tourism will hold contacts with entrepreneurs and tour operators of the Iranian tourism market, so that Greece can attract a share of outbound tourism from Iran, during the celebration of the Persian New Year (NOWROUZ) on March 21 and during the summer holidays.
The peoples of the two countries have deep cultural roots in antiquity as well as historical references. This, along with the possibilities of the Iranian tourism market (about 5 million Iranians travel abroad in the period of the Persian New Year), pave the way for the development of cooperation, which the leadership of the Economy, Development and Tourism Ministry and GNTO aim to exploit in the best possible way, the organisation said in an announcement.
