Hoteliers' group bashes proposal limiting supports for 'all-inclusive' hotels

Greek hoteliers on Monday lambasted a proposal by Tourism Deputy Minister Giorgos Nikitiadis to include limitations in “all inclusive” services by hotels seeking funding via a new development law expected to be tabled by the government.
In announcement, the Panhellenic Association of Hoteliers stressed that the tourism deputy minister “continues to act irresponsibly, without any previous consultation with related agencies, ignoring developments in the market.
“… He (Nikitiadis) is consumed by amateur and futile efforts, ignoring the fact that such actions, although pleasant to his electorate, do not offer added value or help in recovering tourism trends, but instead, if introduced, could deprive Greek hotel enterprises from a steadily increasing global demand for all inclusive services,” the statement read, making reference to the fact that Nikitiadis is elected from the Dodecanese island constituency.
Hoteliers underlined that adoption of such proposal would lead to even larger decline in competitiveness for the country’s tourism product.
“The all inclusive system is not a Greek invention. It is an international tourism product steadily on the increase in our main markets, such as the UK, Germany and Russia,” the association said.
Last week, Nikitiadis said he intended to place limitations for all inclusive services offered by Greek hotels seeking financial subsidisation from a new development law for investments.
