As it is commonly accepted and undisputed, tourism is indeed our country’s heavy industry, offering unrivalled investment potential.
Research shows that the benefits of tourism are spread across 17 sectors of economic activity and 9 sectors of the Greek economy, including the primary sector, while it plays the most important role in the distribution of national income across all regions with the dispersion of tourist destinations in our country.
The number of inbound tourists and travel receipts doubled during the period 2010-2019, along with the boom in tourism worldwide, which smoothed the impact of the economic recession that Greece entered with the domestic debt crisis in 2010, with tourism becoming the main source of financing the trade deficit.
Businesses operating in the tourism sector are facing new challenges in terms of digital and green transformation and dealing with the impact of the energy crisis.
Business models have already started to adapt to a demanding environment, especially in terms of digital technology. The Greek Development Law, the NSRF programmes and all state and European aid are making existing and new businesses alert to receive this aid and to further develop their activities.
