    [02] Greece signs EU protocol to boost tourism

    BRUSSELS (AMNA / V. Demiris) -- Greek Culture and Tourism Deputy Minister George Nikitiadis on Tuesday signed a protocol of cooperation with Antonio Tajani, the vice-president of the European Commission, responsible for tourism affairs, aimed at boosting tourism between South America and Europe.

    The protocol has already been signed by Italy, France, Spain, Lithuania and Poland, while all European travel agency unions, the union of European tour operators and Alitalia, Air France, British Airways, Iberia, Lufthansa and TAP all cooperated towards the success of the project.amna

    The aim of the European program is to strengthen tourism cooperation between Europe and third countries, based on the common traditions, culture, linguistic and educational bonds. The countries which have signed this protocol will take measures to facilitating tourism between European and South American countries by promoting travel to the benefit of local economies.

    The minister discussed with the Commission’s vice-president issues related with European tourism policy.

    [03] Businesses warn of risk of domestic default

    AMNA-- Greek enterprises are demanding a national default on their debt as a reaction to persecution suffered by the commerce sector from recent government austerity measures, the National Confederation of Hellenic Commerce (ESEE) said on Tuesday.

    In an announcement, ESEE stressed that “these options might not comply with the definition of right behaviour but under the current circumstances, words and opinions have lost their meaning and everyone reacts on its own. In this framework, even a default could be supported by a series of rational arguments”.

    The managing council of ESEE unanimously agreed to send a letter of protest to the Prime Minister and political leaders expressing the agony of the commerce sector and warning over the danger of a domestic default on debt.

    ESEE asks that the proposals of the sector to be heard in order to overcome basic economic problems, offering new hope to the market and restoring the faith of the commerce world to itself, leading the country back to recovery.
