Aegean islands – freedom Ftaklaki: The tourism … hurting! – Our islands radiate a cry of agony!

We are experiencing a difficult period at all levels and the only sure thing is that our homeland, the society, the citizens, they need strong leaders who know what they need to do to get the country out of the vortex that has fallen!! Especially not, the fragile sector of tourism that due to its unique value for our island societies , as a product of monoculture for decades!!…..

The tourism, which as a political act now and not only as a product, needs vision, strategy, operational action plan and crisis management scenarios!!
He needs strong leadership that knows all the variables and parameters of the game very well and knows how to avoid "mischief"!!!

A leadership that knows the principles and rules of governance and knows how to strengthen the tourism product without falling into the traps and ‘north’ of the competitive tourism market, where its regulators (tour operators), They "speculate" even more on the difficult!!

The ND government, proved in such a difficult time that it lags behind the leadership and the Ministry of Tourism, as well as the Minister of Tourism, K. Theocharis, it worked piecemeal and spasmodically in terms of tackling the crisis in the tourism sector, even proceeding with ‘unfortunate‘ categorizations ’of the Greek islands and thus inciting even more the ‘lailapa’ of the crisis that sweeps everything in its path!

The ND government, proved in such a difficult time that it lags behind the leadership and the Ministry of Tourism, as the Minister of Tourism, K. Theocharis, operated in fragments and spasmodically in terms of tackling the crisis in the tourism sector, even making ‘unfortunate‘ categorizations ’of the Greek islands and thus inciting even more the‘ lailapa ’of the crisis that is sweeping everything in its path.!

Hundreds of thousands of tourism and food workers are at risk of becoming unemployed and living on two-month low-wage benefits.. Thousands and rental property owners, tourist shops, taxi drivers, tourist buses, guides, construction workers, etc., who do not see a glimmer of hope in this admittedly difficult period as they do not belong to the "privileged" of benefits!!

All involved- tourism workers all they seek- regardless of ideological and political beliefs- is a solid leadership at the helm of our country who knows how to change course on the ship so that it does not fall into disrepair and crumple!!
But what we are watching these days , only seriousness and responsibility do not show!! Instead of chanting weak arguments about themselves , excuses, Mr.. Theocharis, as a politician he had to demand meaculpa from the islanders on the one hand and resign on the other.!

The only sure thing is that the Prime Minister, K. Mitsotakis must immediately provide a solution and restore the wounded image of Greek tourism! Because if he doesn't, then his attitude of tolerance , translates as weakness and as a tacit acceptance of his minister's positions!

Our islands must once again be at the center of visibility and stand out as safe island destinations.. Rhodes , our beautiful islands, the pearls of the Aegean, they must return dynamically to the preferences of foreign visitors, with targeted promotion campaigns !!

The controversy must end with the people of Jerusalem, they have to agree, expand their cooperation networks and immediately develop a crisis management strategy !!

This is what society demands, not disputes, emptiness and political ‘speculation’ in the logic of “your death, my life"!!! Because with these old party practices, in the end we all risk 'dying'!!! And of course not from a corona…

The categorization of the islands in terms of their health shielding, to be replaced immediately by funding public works and services in the health sector of the islands!! The islands need political rather than wishful thinking and communicative pompousness…

Let the crisis not be their gravestone, but an opportunity to transform the productive process of the islands with balanced development and change of the tourist product based on the island identity and the comparative advantages of each destination.

Change the wheel, Mr. Prime Minister, before it is too late!! Put insularity at the center of your policies, embrace island societies!
Our islands radiate a cry of agony!
