Greece: Covid-19 Tourism Recovery Technical Assistance Cooperation Package – Facilitating Tourism Recovery in Aftermath of Covid-19
Activity: Support Programme for Greek Tourism MSMEs and job retention
Deliverable: Roadmap for Supporting Tourism MSMEs and Job Retention
The Ministry of Tourism, in collaboration with the World Tourism Organisation (UNWTO) and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) has prepared a roadmap to support tourism micro-, small- and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and to help retain jobs.
The roadmap includes a set of actions designed specifically for the Ministry of Tourism, the tourism industry collective bodies and the tourism MSMEs, the implementation of which will help tourism businesses recover swiftly from the effects of the pandemic and achieve the best possible economic results in the market conditions prevailing today.
The selection of proposed actions was based on extensive research among tourism bodies, tourism businesses as well as officers of the Ministry of Development and Investments and the Ministry of Finance. This research contributed in assessing the support measures implemented in the previous two years, in the analysis of the needs and priorities of tourism businesses in the post-COVID-19 era, and in getting suggestions from stakeholders on what kind of support they would like.
