GREEKS HOPE FOR MORE TOURIST ARRIVALS

0

ATHENS: Greece is hoping for a new tourism record this year, with arrivals likely to exceed 20 million, in a new sign that the country is winning back foreigners as the economy gets back on its feet. After a poor season in 2012—a year marked by back-to-back elections, political instability, and anti-austerity protests—the tourism industry seems finally to be getting its swagger back. Last year saw a record 20 million foreign tourists visiting the country, as fears of a Greek exit from the euro receded. “2013 was a record year. In 2014, every indication shows that we are going to break this record,” Prime Minister Antonis Samaras told a tourism conference last month. “Get ready for over 20 million visitors,” he added.
