Collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism for digital nomads

WIND Hellas in collaboration with the Ministry of Tourism contributes, through the development of new generation networks, to the strengthening of destinations with digital infrastructure, in order to be places of attraction and work for Digital Nomads. This initiative of the Ministry of Tourism and WIND comes at a really critical juncture, as Greece’s entry into the digital transition is dynamic. Services and infrastructure are being upgraded by the competent providers, with the support of the state.

The pilot program announced today by the Minister Mr. Vassilis Kikilias, during the Conference “Greek Tourism, a National Cause! Possibilities and Perspectives “, aims to promote Greece as a destination for the installation of Digital Nomads and at the same time to strengthen the image of Greek tourism.

As announced by the Minister of Tourism Vassilis Kikilias, “Several visitors stayed in our islands and winter destinations in the winter and worked remotely from there. This is a global trend, Digital Nomads, is a piece of visitors that we would like in the country. Mainly enhances off season tourism. We are launching an initiative in cooperation with the private sector, first with WIND and I believe it will be expanded. Companies will provide better service packages. We as a Ministry undertake the obligation to cooperate with the local government so that we can have accommodation, health stores, etc. To enable people to organize their lives where they will live. This cooperation has to be credited to the strategy of extending the tourist season. Pilot we start from Ermoupolis of Syros, Heraklion and Kalamata and will be extended throughout the country. I am announcing this initiative today, as a proof of what a sustainable tourism model means. We use the new technologies and give the opportunity to open the fan of the tourist product in another different way. “

The cities that will take part in the pilot program are Heraklion of Crete, Kalamata and Ermoupolis of Syros. The specific destinations, through the provision of specialized products, services and communication for digital nomads, as well as the availability of digital infrastructure, will become ideal for remote work and reception of digital nomads. At the same time, additional “loyalty” privileges will be formed in cooperation with the local government and the business community (accommodation, catering, simplification of procedures, etc.).

“Technology and the unique tourist product of the country join forces and give the brand name Greece the opportunity to stand out even more. To leave a strong imprint on the combined work and leisure experience. To offer benefits in the field of strengthening the national economy. Ministry of Tourism and WIND come to boost the multifaceted image of the country, as a unique destination in the professional sector. The Digital Nomads initiative maximizes the impact of the tourism product and strengthens the profile of digital services, popular tourist destinations “said Michalis Anagnostakos, General Manager of Consumer Marketing of WIND Hellas.

Digital nomads are employees, whose physical presence in a workplace is not necessary, as they work exclusively in an online environment. Telecommunications infrastructure and high internet speeds are important criteria in deciding where to install. According to analyst firm Gartner, more than 80% of companies plan to allow their employees to work remotely at least part-time after the pandemic.
