Featured GNTO chief Gerekou: Our aim is sustainable tourism growth

Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) President Angela Gerekou, in an address late on Thursday to the 100th general assembly of the European Travel Commission held via teleconference, said that in order to go forward it was necessary to first take a step back and assess what has happened in the last decade. Afterward, she added, there must be an analysis of the current conditions and the planning and implementation of policies for "the kind of tourism we want to have in the coming years."

Gerekou then raised issues relating to the tourism industry's adaptation ahead of 2021 and presented the GNTO's priorities for the future of Greek tourism.
She noted that tourism's future depending on people's desire to travel and that the role of national tourism organizations was to monitor developments in this area and move forward. "As GNTO, we are moving exactly in this direction, aiming at sustainable tourism growth in 2021 and a new tourism model up to 2030," she said.
