USEFUL BUSINESS INFORMATION ON GREECE

 

1. Country Brief:

 

A. Introduction - Greece is, the land of ancient sites and architectural treasures - the Acropolis in Athens, the amphitheater of Epidaurus, and the reconstructed palace at Knossos among the best known.

 

But Greece is much more. It offers age-old spectacular natural sights, for instance - from Santorini's caldera to the gray pinnacles of rock of the Meteora - and modern diversions ranging from elegant museums to luxury resorts. It can be bewildering to plan your trip with so many options vying for your attention. Take us along and we'll do the work for you. We've traveled the country extensively and chosen the very best that Greece has to offer. We've explored the archaeological sites, visited the museums, inspected the hotels, reviewed the tavernas and ouzeries, and scoped out the beaches. Here's what we consider the best of the best.

 

Greece is a very beautiful and varied country. There are hundreds of islands (Crete is the largest one), thousands of coastlines and ports, and mountains and seas which all make for a very varied landscape. Because of the types of landscape that exist in Greece, outdoor pursuits are plentiful and extreme sports enthusiasts have a great time

 

B. Climate - Most of Greece has a mild climate. Summers are warm and dry, particularly in the southern coastal areas. Rain is heavy during the winter months, with some mountain areas getting snow

 

C. Geographical Area - Total Area: 132,000 sq km (Mainland: 107,000 sq km, Islands: 25,000 sq km)

 

D. Language - Greek

 

E. Currency With Exchange Rate - Germany Deutsche Marks obsolete (DEM)

1.00 DEM = 0.696340 USD

 

G. Major Cities - Athens, Patra, Piraeus, Larisa and Salonica

 

2. Transportation:

 

A. Railway - Total length: 2,474 km/1,537 mi; Total passenger journeys: 13.3 million (1999)

 

B. Road - total road network: 117,000 km/72,704 mi, of which 91.8% paved (1999 est); passenger cars: 254 per 1,000 people (1998 est)

 

C. Airports - nine international airports and 24 domestic airports, of which 13 are authorized to receive international flights; total passengers carried: 7.3 million (2001 est)

 

D. Waterways – 6 km

note: Corinth Canal (6 km) crosses the Isthmus of Corinth; shortens sea voyage by 325 km (2006)

 

E. Sea Ports - Greece has 123 ports large enough to handle passengers or freight. Besides the traditionally busy ports of Piraeus, Thessaloniki, and Patras, the ports of Igoumenitsa in the northwest, Volos in the east, and Kavala in the northeast have been gaining importance as transfer points for goods destined for Italy, the Middle East, and the Balkan countries

 

3. Economy:

 

A. Major Manufacturing -

 

B. Major Export - Fruits and vegetables, chemicals, clothing, mineral fuels and lubricants, textiles, iron and steel, aluminium and aluminium alloys. Principal market: Germany 12.3% (1999)

 

C. Major Import - Petroleum and petroleum products, machinery and transport equipment, food and live animals, chemicals and chemical products. Principal source: Italy 13.5% (1999)

 

D. Major Industries - The land within Greece is not very productive for farming. The Greeks have struggled to build a strong economy. The standard of living in Greece is lower than other European countries.

 

Manufacturing is becoming one of the key industries. Tourism is also very important, particularly along the Aegean Sea coast.

 

Some farming includes wheat, fruits, vegetables, olives and grapes. Some areas support goat and sheep ranching.

 

Fishing also continues to be an important industry, food products, metals and metal products, textiles; radio, television, and communications equipment; petroleum refining, machinery and transport equipment, tourism, wine

 

 

E. Trade Balance – Greece has an exceptionally extrovert economy. The total value of Greek trade amounted to 44,870.7 million Euros in 2003. Most of this concerns imports. Export levels remain low, creating a trade deficit, with services comprising the greatest share of exports (shipping tourism financial services immigrants foreign currency remittances, etc.)
