Tourism revenues already exceed 18 bln euros, says Minister

Revenues from Greek tourism have already exceeded 18 billion euros this year, Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias told reporters on Friday, on the sidelines of the annual meeting of the presidents of the Hellenic Hoteliers’ Federation held in Thessaloniki on the occasion of the 37th Philoxenia exhibition.

“The Bank of Greece is releasing the official figures in March but I believe that we have already exceeded the finance ministry’s target of 15 billion euros in revenues and we will see where it will end,” Kikilias said.

Kikilias also underlined that Greece is among the top tourism brands worldwide and “the country that all the planet loves”.
