Did you know that according to data released by the Association of Greek Tourism Enterprises (SETE) and the Bank of Greece, until recently, the Greek tourism industry employed more than 900,000 people, accounting for one fifth of the workforce?
The total contribution of travel and tourism to employment in Greece decreased in 2020 due to the global pandemic, but the World Travel & Tourism Council (WTTC) is forecasting that over 100 million jobs could return to the global travel and tourism sector during 2021, as the world recovers from the crippling COVID-19 pandemic.
