The contacts of the Minister of Tourism Vassilis Kikilias in Paris, during his two-day visit to the French capital on the occasion of the international tourism exhibition Top Resa, brought significant benefits.
As it is emphasized in the relevant press release, in all his meetings the Minister of Tourism, accompanied by the General Secretary of EOT Dimitris Fraggakis, set as a goal the further increase of French visitors to Greece, both for the next tourist season and for the winter months, during school holidays in France. These were the main points on the agenda of Mr. Kikilias’ meeting with his French counterpart Jean-Baptiste Lemoyne. Mr. Kikilias also had a private meeting with the Minister of Tourism of Croatia Nikolina Brnjac.
