Greece is not good for Germans - level 2, A12
German tourists don’t want to spend their holiday in Greece this year because they are afraid of angry Greek people. Greeks are angry because Germans want them to have higher taxes and lower pensions.
The Greek minister of tourism is not happy about the situation. He wants to change the situation very quickly, but it will not be easy. Greece is close to financial collapse but Greek people don’t want to have higher taxes and lower pensions. There is a problem. If they don’t change the situation, they cannot stay in the Euro-zone.
Germans visited Greece a lot 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 economy in Greece is dependent on tourism because about 15% of all of the money in Greece comes from tourism. Tourists spend in Greece 10 billion euros every year.
