Greek commercial stores will offer a 20 percent discount to tourists from four countries every year.
The four «honoured» countries for 2016 are Turkey, Israel, Russia and the US.
Greek businesses accepted with pleasure Deputy Foreign Minister Dimitris Mardas initiative to promote commercial activities in the tourist season and reward the trust of foreign tourists, the president of the Hellenic Federation of Enterprises (ESEE) Vassilis Korkidis noted in a joint press conference with Mardas.
Aegean Airlines also participated in the press conference as the relevant brochure will be distributed during its flights.
Mardas underlined that this initiative will offer a boost to the Greek market. On his part, Korkidis noted that the tourists from these countries already have tax exemption for purchases they make in Greece while the 20 percent discount is not associated with tax free as the discount is made directly in the shop.
The «honoured» countries in 2017 will be China, Iran, Western Balkans and the EU.
