1429. Tomb Raider Chronicles - GREECE URGED TO DISPEL GAMES WORRIES
Fears about this week's bombings could further dampen Greece's already depressed hopes of attracting masses of tourists to the Summer Games according to the tourism industry, Games Bids (www.gamesbids.com) reports today. Anna Anyfanti, an official with HATTA - the union of travel agents - told journalists: the attack was widely exaggerated in the international press - now it's absolutely necessary that the government instigates a dynamic public-relations policy to promote Greek tourism. Greece must send out positive messages to the international community. HATTA says, there are around 75,000 tourists in Athens on a usual summer season day. We had hoped to double that during the Olympics. But now we estimate that some 80,000 will be around, at best.
