Greece’s tourism growth July 23, 2007

Posted by grhomeboy in Tourism.

The number of tourists arriving in Greece rose 5.95% in the first half of 2007, compared with a year earlier, suggesting a third successive year of growth, the Association of Greek Tourist Enterprises said Thursday.

“If the rate of growth remains through the end of the year, Greek tourism over the period 2004-2007 will have recorded a 24-percent cumulative increase in tourism arrivals,” said Stavros Andreadis, Chairman of the Association. “That is a spectacular result,” he said. “And it shows that the growth potential is enormous.”

Greece last year attracted nearly 16 million tourists, who spent an estimated 12 billion euros ($16.6 billion), the Association said.
