The national Federation of Tourism Enterprises (GEPOET) addressed a letter to Citizen Protection Minister Christos Papoutsis and Culture & Tourism Minister Pavlos Geroulanos, citing the recent violent incidents recorded during demonstrations in central Athens.
“While the country’s economy is at its lowest and the ordinary Greek citizen expects from the political leadership to rise to the occasion by setting an example with its stance, we are faced with exactly the opposite, considering that our leaders have not realised yet that tourism suffers huge damage each time violent incidents take place.”
