Experience PMR


Greece has a market-driven economy. There is a mix of industrial and agricultural, with a large contribution also coming from the services sector (predominately tourism, transit movement and retail trading). Tourism is one of the pillars of the country’s economy, contributing 15% of GDP. Greece is visited by approximately five million tourists annually. The food industry is the country’s fastest-growing sector, with it being best known for its large-scale production of wines, olive oil, tobacco, fruit preserves and fish preserves. Greek has the world’s third-largest merchant fleet, although, when factoring in those ships that are registered elsewhere but operated by Greek shipowners, it can be said that Greece has the largest merchant fleet in the world. Seaways are crucial to the Greek economy, with 89% of the country’s exports being transported by this mode of transport.
