    #Summer has begun in #Europe: restrictions on #travel are ending, beaches and bars are beckoning, and #Greece is particularly keen to fill them all with holidaymakers. Greece is the European country that relies the most heavily on tourists for its national wealth. In non-Covid times, the sector generates a fifth of Greek GDP and employs one in six workers. But the sector has been rocked by the pandemic, this after a decade of austerity and financial crisis from which businesses and banks have still not entirely recovered.
