Tourism in the Peloponnese is gaining momentum, which is driven by the area’s upgraded infrastructure, the development of thematic travel products and promotional activities run by regional authorities.

Ερμιονίδα- «Σωσίβιο» για την περιοχή το φυσικό της κάλλος, λείπει η σοβαρή και συστηματική προώθηση…»

Αναδημοσιεύουμε από την εφημερίδα “Ενημέρωση Πελοποννήσου”

Έρευνα: Κώστας Πρώιμος

Με αιτία και αφορμή την απερχόμενη τουριστική σεζόν καταγράψαμε τον απολογισμό της, μέσω των συνομιλιών μας, με τέσσερις γνωστούς επιχειρηματίες, που δραστηριοποιούνται στην Ερμιόνη και το Πόρτο – Χέλι.

Το κύριο εξαγόμενο συμπέρασμα της ακόλουθης έρευνας,  αποτελεί η διαπίστωση πως η «Τουριστική» Ερμιονίδα, παρά τις σοβαρές ελλείψεις σε αναπτυξιακές υποδομές, καταφέρνει μέσω παρατεταμένης ύφεσης να επιβιώνει, χάριν πρωτίστως στο φυσικό της κάλλος και τις ιδιαιτερότητές της, που την καθιστούν θελκτική, σε όσους την επισκέπτονται είτε συστηματικά, είτε για πρώτη φορά…

Πάντως, εν όψει κοσμογονικών εξελίξεων, στο γεωπολιτικό χάρτη και τα διεθνή  οικονομικά συστήματα, ο έμπειρος επιχειρηματίας κ. Παναγιώτης Γούτος,  «κρούει τον κώδωνα του κινδύνου», ισχυριζόμενος πως είναι επιτακτική ανάγκη, η δημιουργία ενός ενιαίου Τουριστικού φορέα προώθησης και προβολής της Ερμιονίδας, αλλά και των γειτονικών νησιών Σπετσών και Ύδρας… συνθέτοντας ένα «μαγικό»  τουριστικό τρίγωνο…

 

Παναγιώτης Γούτος- (GODAI):  «Η εφετινή χρονιά για την επιχείρησή μας που αποτελεί και μια καινούρια επένδυση στην περιοχή, μπορώ να πω ότι ήταν καλή και φαίνεται πλέον ότι «πατάμε» γερά για τρίτη συνεχόμενη σεζόν, χάριν στην επιμονή μας για ποιότητα και παροχή υψηλών υπηρεσιών… Θέλω όμως να επισημάνω πως,  κανένα GODAI  ή άλλη τουριστική μονάδα,  δεν μπορούν από μόνες τους να σηματοδοτήσουν την περαιτέρω ανάκαμψη της περιοχής μας. Καθώς δεν υπάρχουν  υποδομές προς αυτή την κατεύθυνση, ούτε και οργανωμένο marketing από τους καθ΄ ύλιν αρμοδίους…
