Greece is not good for Germans - level 1, A12
German tourists don’t want to go on holiday to Greece this year, because the Greeks don’t like them. The Greeks don’t like the Germans because the Germans tell the Greeks what to do with money.
The Greek minister of tourism is not happy. He wants to change the situation but it will not be easy. Greece is near financial collapse. The Greeks don’t want to do what the Germans say. But if they don’t do it, they cannot be in the Euro-zone.
Germans visited Greece a lot of times in the past. Two million Germans visited the country last year. It is 12% of all tourists who visited Greece last year and it is a big number.
The Greek economy needs tourists because 15% of Greece’s money comes from tourists. Tourists pay in Greece 10 billion euros every year.
