Greek Hoteliers president Tassios: ITB results crucial for German bookings

The messages for Greece were positive after the conclusion of the first day of the largest international tourism exhibition (ITB), held in Berlin, according to the president of the Hellenic Federation of Hoteliers Grigoris Tassios, ANA reports. "Greece's participation is extensive, maybe more so than last year, especially in terms of the private sector - individual enterprises or groups, mostly hotels - that enhanced representation in terms of sales and reservations which we should secure shortly," he noted, adding that "Germany appears to be a stable market for Greece, especially for northern Greece, but Thursday and Friday at the exhibition will be crucial." "It is clear that Spain, with a 10 percent VAT rate and Turkey with the same hold the first and the second place in German preference, while we come in third. It's therefore self-evident that we need some tax relief from the government in order to be more competitive," Tassios added.
