High ROI Investments in Tourism and in Hospitality Industry in Greece!
Investors are discovering that Greece has a combination of characteristics that are unequalled in Europe.
The hospitality – tourism industry in Greece is attracting a considerable number of international investors in the past couple of years, resulting to a rapid growth in the industry which is expected to reach 14 billion EUR by 2020.
The competitive advantages of Greece, such as rich cultural heritage, natural beauty and geographical variety, have been attracting significant tourism investments in recent years, thus further strengthening Greece’s image as an ideal destination both for holidays and tourism-related investments.
Even during the recent crisis, the tourist industry in Greece has been one of the mainstays of economic growth and employment, with a continued growth driven mainly by:
- The upgrading of the tourist product.
- The development of key, new markets such as Russia, Israel, Turkey and China.
The upgrading of the tourist product is supported by a number of initiatives by the Greek state, the Greek National Tourism Organization, the relevant business associations, and the regional authorities and municipalities, and is considered to be a strategic avenue for growth in the Greek economy.
