These Legs Are Going to Bring Millions of Tourists to Greece

I truly believe the appointment of Olga Kefalogianni, 37, for the post of the Tourism Ministry is a good choice. For several reasons: First and most important – she knows the issues she is going to deal with as she was responsible for Tourism within Nea Dimocratia for several years.

Second: As an attorney at law by profession she can deal with laws and orders.

Third: She is the only woman heading a ministry in Samaras’ government.

Fourth: Somebody, who can walk around for several hours on 10-cm (or 12-cm?) high heels, can certainly prove she has endurance, strength of will,  aesthetic taste and strong sense of balance. And that stumbling and fall is not on her agenda.

“Tourism can become the central pillar of the economic policy and lead the country out of the crisis” Kefalogianni  said at a ceremony at the Tourism Ministry on Friday. She stressed that one of the ministry’s targets is to restore the image of Greece abroad.

Keep Walking, Olga, whether in high heels or sandals! Main thing is to heal the wounded Greek Tourism Industry!

PS Kefalogiannis’ data on wikipedia/English needs to be expanded and updated 🙂

    I am sure in we look into the figures for tourism they have not gone down by that much…here in Kos the numbers go up every year….however the main problem that has to be addressed is the Fully Inclusive Hotels, this is the main problem, they are slowly or should I say, quite rapidly kill all the small villages on the island. Its a very difficult problem, because, if they were banned, I am sure people would just go to places where they are still allowed, like Turkey and spain…but this problem has to be looked into…if we are confident enough that people really do want to keep visiting Greece, then something should be done about then…go back to Full Board at least…

    yeha, full board seems a good compromise. thanks for the info.

    This shows a total different situation, if that keeps on the next two months you’ll see more and more broken homes…
