Roughly 17 million tourists are expected to arrive in Greece this summer, bringing direct revenues of roughly 11 billion euros into the country΄s coffers, the president of the Panhellenic Hoteliers΄ Federation Yiannis Retsos said in an interview with ANA-MPA WebTV.

Retsos said the largest percentage of visitors was expected to arrive from Russia, though higher traffic is also expected from countries such as Germany, where arrivals had “collapsed” in recent years.
