Greece’s Tourism Ministry on Thursday presented the new platform “Greece from Home,” a product developed through the joint cooperation of the National Greek Tourism Organization, Marketing Greece and Google.
The new platform will give its web visitors the opportunity to discover the beauties of Greece and to “travel” to its cities and towns, to keep in touch with Greek culture – without leaving home.
“Greece stays home but doesn’t stay home,” Tourism Minister Haris Theoharis said at the unveiling of the new program.
“In addition to measures to protect public health, shield and restart the economy and rebuild Greek society, the government is also taking steps to strengthen the image of our country as a tourist destination in the framework of its overall strategic response to the COVID-19 pandemic”, Theocharis stated.
The Tourism Minister also said that that it is particularly important that in these difficult times the public and private sectors cooperate together and work hard in order to prepare for the future.
Asked when he believes that the Greek tourism industry will return to normalcy, Theocharis stressed that no one can predict when this will happen.
This position is reinforced by the fact that no one knows exactly what the near future will bring in the countries which form the bulk of the tourism market for Greece, including Germany, France, Italy, the Americas, etc.
