CORFU. Tourism Minister Vassilis Kikilias will meet with the four Corfu tourism bodies on Friday at 12p.m. to discuss about the operation of the School of Tourism.

It should be noted that the bodies had held a press conference regarding the rescue of the School of Tourism, due to lack of administrative and educational staff. They also pointed out the necessity of continuing its operation and its contribution to specialised staff.
The bodies had sent a letter to Mr. Kikilias, where they stated the serious problems and asked for solutions regarding the recruitment of permanent staff. In fact, Corfu ND MP Stefanos Gikas conveyed to the Minister the tourism bodies’ request to meet with him – a request which Mr. Kikilias accepted.
