-|GREECE|- [!] A Place Really Worth Visiting [!] (+) [!] A Video Really Worth Watching [!] |See You In Greece!|

Greece is one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world. With more than 16,000 kilometers of coastline, more than 6,000 islands and islets (of which 227 are inhabited), historic sites that span four millennia, idyllic beaches and towering mountain ranges there is a wide variety of tourist attractions in Greece to explore. And despite the deep financial/debt crisis, Greece as a travel destination is as popular as it has ever been.

The competitive advantages of Greece, such as rich cultural heritage, unique natural beauty and geographical variety, have been attracting remarkable tourism investments in recent years, thus further strengthening Greece’s image as an ideal destination both for holidays and tourism-related investments.

After nine (9) years of economic and social Armageddon, deep recession and financial crisis (2008-2016), 2017 (or 2nd semester of 2016) can be a time of absolute recovery and strong economic growth. I strongly believe that Greek economy will suffer for extra 1-2 years, however it will start to grow by more than 2.5-3% from 2017 onwards (while deflation will end within the next 1-1.5 years). Therefore, Greek real market as well as Greece’s stock market (Athens Stock Exchange-ASE) will be very attractive investment choices for investors from all over the world.

Everyone MUST take into strong consideration that Greece is not only history. Greece is not only a beautiful place. Modern Greece is also a promising place to invest, providing substantial opportunities, characteristic of an emerging new market!

The economic dynamics of Greece is the product of a large variety of factors, some of the most important being the gradual restoration of its international competitiveness, the high-skilled workforce, its proximity to European, Asian and Arabic markets, the high growing (Renewable Energy Sources) RES market, the internationally competitive Greek tourism product, the huge Greek Merchant Navy (that controls 16.2% of the world’s total merchant fleet) and the significant natural resources available here.

With a GDP of more than $207 bil. i.e. ≈€185 bil. (in current prices, 2015), a population of about 10.8 mil. (2011), a second Greek state (Cyprus) with an extra GDP of about $22 bil. (& a population of 0.86 mil.) as well as more than 5 mil. Greek expatriates around the world (more than 1 mil. in countries of the EU like the UK, Germany and France), Greece is still too big to fail and attractive for new investments in key economic sectors.

With more than 16,000 kilometers of coastline, more than 6,000 islands and islets (of which 227 are inhabited), and a well-established tourism industry, Greece presents a prime investment opportunity in the Tourism sector. The country is one of the top global tourist destinations for sun and beach holidays, and also provides very attractive propositions for year-round themed holidays. The competitive advantages of Greece, such as rich cultural heritage, unique natural beauty and geographical variety, have been attracting remarkable tourism investments in recent years, thus further strengthening Greece’s image as an ideal destination both for holidays and tourism-related investments.

Greece attracts more than 22.5 million people each year (the number of international arrivals in 2014 according to the official estimates of the Bank of Greece), contributing about 18% to the nation’s GDP. 

More analytically, tourism directly contributed 17 billion euros in GDP for Greece in 2014, or some 9% of Greece’s total GDP, according to a study released by SETE Intelligence the research department of the Greek Tourism Federation. The study highlighted that its direct and indirect contribution to the economy stands at 20-25% of Greece’s GDP.

Tourism product direct contribution (2014): 17 bil. euros

 |<>|

Even during the recent crisis, the tourist industry in Greece has been one of the mainstays of economic growth and employment, with a continued growth in tourist arrivals and revenues driven mainly by:
• the determined efforts of the Greek tourist authorities and associations to upgrade the tourist product offering
• the development of new key emerging markets such as China, Russia, Turkey and Israel.

The upgrading of the Greek tourism product is considered to be one of the most strategic avenues for a strong, dynamic and sustainable economic growth.

-|New Updated and Official Data for Greece’s GDP (Seasonally and calendar adjusted figures)|-

According to the official (final) and seasonally-calendar adjusted figures of the Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) announced on May 29, 2015 in the 1st quarter of 2015 the Gross Domestic Product of Greece (GDP) increased by 0.4% in comparison with the 1st quarter of 2014 (y-o-y). Therefore, despite the Greek economy and real market experienced – and continues to experience – very serious liquidity problems, GDP growth rate on annual basis remained positive during the said period (January-March, 2015) even though very low. In other words, Greece’s GDP growth rate in annual basis for the 1st quarter of 2015 decreased in comparison to the previous one (4th quarter of 2014) from +1.30% to +0.40% but Greece did not slip back into recession.

Note: GDP is calculated at constant prices (2010)

(!) Greece will be the fastest growing economy in Europe in 2016 according to the latest World Economic Outlook released by the IMF [April 2015] (!)

According to the latest version of the World Economic Outlook (WEO) elaborated by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and published on April 14, 2015, Greece’s GDP growth rate will reach +2.5% in 2015 and +3.7% in 2016. In other words, during 2016 Greece will be the fastest growing economy in Europe (see the related table below) and one of the most fast-growing economies around the world (after India, China and some emerging-developing and undeveloped countries of Central and SE Asia, Africa and Latin America)!

(!) GR for GRowth, GRecovery and a total turnaround story (!) -|- (!) Greece must stop to be the eurozone’s debt-colony & austerity must end (!) -|- Are you ready for a new Greek Economic Miracle from 2017 onwards?

After six (6) years of economic and social Armageddon (2008-2013), 2014 was a year of slightly positive GDP growth rate and 2015, at last, can be a time of absolute recovery and strong economic growth. I strongly believe that Greek economy will suffer for extra 1-2 years, however it will start to grow by around 1.5-2.0% from 2017 onwards (and deflation will end within the next 1-1.5 years). Therefore, Greek real market as well as Greece’s stock market (Athens Stock Exchange-ASE) will be very attractive investment choices for investors from all over the world.
