The committee organizing the Athens Olympics in 2004 has reached agreement with hoteliers in the Greek capital over housing visitors to the event, Development Minister Nikos Christodoulakis said on Wednesday.
Christodoulakis told a news conference that that agreement, forged on Tuesday with the Athens Hoteliers Union, covered the main areas of difficulty in providing accommodation for the flood of visitors due to attend the Olympics. The agreement emerged after the two sides had met with Christodoulakis himself. Pending was the provision of guarantees for deposits, the minister said. He is to present a proposal to both sides.
Christodoulakis added that he would shortly bring to the National Tourism Council for debate what he called an Olympics tourism package that would state the government's tourism policy measures covering infrastructure, modernization, auxiliary installations and installations still lacking.
