Greek Tourism Minister Elena Kountoura met tourism and air-transport officials in Shanghai to discuss ways of boosting Greek tourism and links between the two nations, the Greek ministry said on Friday.

The talks were held as part of the minister’s trip to China’s international tourism exhibition, ITB China.

Kountoura held a news conference and organized an event at the newly opened Hellas House in Shanghai with three of China’s largest airlines as part of a push by Greece for the introduction of a new direct flight between Shanghai and Athens.
