Triple con­cern for lo­cal tourism pro­fes­sion­als

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

pro­fes­sion­als fear a drop in the com­pet­i­tive­ness of the Greek des­ti­na­tion as a re­sult of the in­crease in value-added tax rates on ac­com­mo­da­tion and food ser­vice, the con­se­quences of the high num­bers of refugees and im­mi­grants ar­riv­ing in the coun­try, and a plan that Tur­key has an­nounced re­gard­ing the cre­ation of tax-free tourism zones. The Turk­ish plan pro­vides for re­sorts on Tur­key’s Aegean coast, close to a num­ber of Greek is­lands such as Lesvos (pic­tured), in the hope of at­tract­ing not only more for­eign tourists but also more in­vestors.
