Greek Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura presented at ITB Berlin earlier this month the ministry’s actions aimed at keeping ahead of the changing business and market requirements in the digital era.

Greece is currently in the process of employing digital technologies to upgrade tourism business procedures and customer experiences.

During the presentation, which took place at Greece’s ITB stand, Kountoura said that the digital transformation of the Greek tourism industry is a ministry priority.

“Only through innovation and new technologies can we ensure high growth rates for Greek tourism in the coming years in a sustainable and responsible manner that is at the core of our strategy,” Kountoura said.

More specifically, according to the minister’s technology advisor Panos Oplopoios, Greece’s “step into the digital era” aims to generate new sources of revenue and create jobs, while ensuring existing small and medium-sized tourism businesses remain competitive.

The strategy includes the following actions implemented jointly with relevant ministries:

– The digital transformation of tourism ministry and Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO) services offered to citizens, businesses and visitors,
– The digital upgrade of tourism education,
– The use of up-to-date technology to collect and process quantitative and qualitative data for tourism,
– The creation of an integrated digital ecosystem to market and promote Greek tourism offerings, with particular focus on the ministry’s new multilingual e-portal Visit Greece.
