Travelers flock to Athens

Mr. Kikilias underscored that despite the fact that we are at the end of September, Athens is still full of travelers from all over the world and the aim now is for October to move at high levels as well. Mr Kikilias noted how tourism is a direct return economy fueling dozens of other professions, from primary production and the commercial sector, to food service and obviously the professions of the tourism industry, most of which are SMEs. Mr Kikilias added that 2022 is a year that clearly confirms with measurable results that tourism is the “steam engine” of the Greek economy, which is also drawing the attention of foreign investors.
