IS THERE A NEW ERA FOR THE HELLENIC TOURISM?
NEW POLICYMAKING & COURSE WITH NATIONAL PARAMETERS
Both the new Superminister of Development, Marine and Tourism, George Stathakis, and the Deputy Minister of Tourism, Elena Kountouras, who in all probability, as it appears, will handle the issues pertaining to the Tourism markets, the mass incoming Tourism and its organization, will require to do some serious preliminary study for these issues before they begin their contacts with the foreign Tour Operators.
Furthermore, before any outward action, a thorough study is needed, for the issues relating to international Tourism organizations, airlines, operators and large business formations associated with airports, aviation monopolies and many other organizations that affect Tourism in our Country.
The preliminary design and the study of policies and of our competitor countries, is also a great issue to be answered.
At the same time, it is necessary for the new Government to be able to implement a new National and more independent policy for the Hellenic Tourism, based on the identity of the Hellenic Tourist Product and the parameters that influence it, positively or negatively.
It would be an omission if the Government did not delved deeper into the issues of visibility, new forms of Tourism with real data, and not fireworks aiming at the personal promotion of heads of the Tourism institutions.
