By most accounts the post-election conditions in Greece are especially favourable.
New Democracy scored a clear victory in the 7 July general elections, secured one-party rule with an eight-seat majority (158 of the legislature's 300 MPs), and secured a clear path for a full four-year term, thus minimising the political dangers that might have burdened it.
Former culture and tourism official Angela Gerekou has been appointed to head the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO), Minister Haris Theoharis announced on Thursday.
Her "experience and knowledge on tourism-related issues will contribute to shaping a modern GNTO, adapted to current conditions," Theoharis said.
The improvement of Greece's financial indicators to levels not seen since before the financial crisis appears to be leading to the fulfillment of the high expectations cultivated by Kyriakos Mitsotakis' New Democracy party before it rose to power.
The reason for this is his administration's positive outlook as regards investments and entrepreneurship.
