Путешествие Q&A: Как Греция влияет на финансовые проблемы туристов?

Вопрос Какова ожидаемая эффект на финансовые проблемы в Греции на туристов этим летом?

Это не простой вопрос, потому переговоры по финансовой судьбы Греции продолжаются, и исход будет определять, насколько неудобно — или нет — будет жизнь.

То, что произошло в Грецию немного напоминает то, что происходит со многими из нас: Он заимствовал слишком много денег. Но вот бешенство часть: Когда новое правительство пришло к власти в конце 2009, было обнаружено, что был некоторый творческий учет, который сделал финансовое положение выглядят намного лучше, чем это фактически было.

Если вы делаете это со страной или с вашим супругом, это плохая идея. Хотя немного супруга обмана вообще не будет уничтожить ваш союз, когда страна, как Греция делает это, он делает под угрозу иного рода союза — Европейский Союз, из которых есть 27 членов и из которых Греция была частью так 1981.

Греция сыграла большую роль в дестабилизации союз. Он пытался перерезать свой долг путем наложения мер жесткой экономии, которые привели к общественного возмущения, насильственные беспорядки и даже смерти.

Ситуация там недовольны. Но Греция должна туристических долларов сейчас более чем когда-либо, чтобы найти свой путь из-под чтобы не дефолт по своим кредитам. Туризм является одним из его ведущих отраслей промышленности, и это означает, что вы склонны найти сделок.

“Греция является прекрасным примером того, как, пока они не могут показать миру,

полная стабильность и контроль, это будет иметь, чтобы сгенерировать существенное значение как способ намотать в … отдых долларов,” говорит Гейб Saglie, старший редактор TravelZoo, сайт сделок.

TravelZoo недавно предложили отдых пакет из восьми ночь в Греции с воздухом из Нью-Йорка для $1,499 человек, он говорит,. Она включала в себя две ночи в Афинах, три в Микенах и три ночи в Санторини, плюс паромное и завтрак. (Сделка была размещена янв. 25 и, возможно, больше не имеется в наличии.)

Is this a package that we’d see if the current situation was much different and much better? Наверное, нет,” он говорит,.

Будете ли вы увязнуть в безумии бунта или забастовки? It’s possible, says Nicholas Hadgis, dean of the School of Hospitality Management at Widener University in Chester, Пенсильвания.

Be prepared to be patient when there are random strikes,” он говорит,. “Greece for yearseven before the crisishad random strikes.Being away from Athens also may be a good idea if you’re looking to bask in the sun without the overlay of tension.

Greece will need to outsmart its competition, Hadgis says, especially to attract Europeanswho just want to get away from the snow and the cold.Greece has more than 2,000 islands and gorgeous beaches, but it also has competition from the rest of the MediterraneanSpain also is in a terrible financial situationfor the euros of those who want to shake off the chill, so it might have further incentive to discount.

Those nice, warm beaches need your cold, hard cash. So read the news, and keep your eyes peeled for bargains. В 2012, Greece very well could be the word.

АФИНЫ (Reuters) – Greek Prime Minister Lucas Papademos told lawmakers to back a deeply unpopular EU/IMF rescue in a vote on Sunday or condemn the country to avortexof recession.

He spoke in a televised address to the nation, ahead of Sunday’s vote on 3.3 один миллиард евро ($4.35 billions) in wage, pension and job cuts as the price of a 130-billion-euro bailout from the European Union and International Monetary Fund.

The effort to ease Greece’s huge debt burden has brought thousands into the streets in protest, and there were signs on Saturday of a small rebellion among lawmakers uneasy with the extent of the cuts.

Papademos said parliament had a historic responsibility to back the bill, or face catastrophic consequences if Greece misses a March 20 deadline to service its debt.

A disorderly default would set the country on a disastrous adventure,” сказал он. “It would create conditions of uncontrolled economic chaos and social explosion.

The country would be drawn into a vortex of recession, instability, unemployment and protracted misery and this would sooner or later lead the country out of the euro.

Parliament’s finance committee approved the bill on Saturday, and a full vote in the chamber is expected late on Sunday.

The Papademos coalition has a huge majority, which should ensure parliament approves the package needed to secure Greece’s second bailout since 2010.

But the number of dissenters is growing.

О 20 MPs belonging to the two major parties backing Papademos shrugged off threats from party leaders and warned they might reject the bailout. It would take more than 80 rebels to scupper the law.

Six members of the Papademos cabinet have already resigned.

INCALCULABLE CONSEQUENCES

In an interview with the newspaper Imerisia, Deputy Finance Minister Filippos Sachinidis described the catastrophe he believes Greece would suffer if it failed to meet debt repayments of 14.5 billion euros due next month.

Let’s just ask ourselves what it would mean for the country to lose its banking system, to be cut off from imports of raw materials, pharmaceuticals, топливо, basic foodstuffs and technology,” сказал он.

On the second day of a 48-hour protest strike, о 50 Communist party activists draped two large banners on the ramparts of the Acropolis on Saturday, чтение: “Down with the dictatorship of the monopolies (и) European Union.

О 7,000 protesters gathered in Athens, сообщает полиция, but there was no repeat of the teargas and petrol bombs of Friday.

Members of the conservative New Democracy party, which has a big lead in opinion polls before elections possible in April, are likely to back the deal solidly. Вокруг 10 have threatened not to.

This is obviously an issue of party discipline,” party leader Antonis Samaras told his lawmakers in parliament, warning anyone who voted ‘No’ “will not be a candidate in the next election.

Former Socialist Prime Minister George Papandreou, who negotiated the first bailout before his government collapsed in November, acknowledged the pressure.

I’ve lost friends, my family suffered, I gave up my office, I was insulted, vilified, like no other politician ever was in this country,” he told PASOK’s parliamentary group.

“По-прежнему, all that is nothing compared with what our people will suffer if we fail to do the right thing.

Party discipline is much weaker at PASOK, whose support has dived to 8 percent in the latest opinion from the nearly 44 percent it commanded when Papandreou led it into power in 2009.

The deal includes a bond swap to ease Greece’s debt burden by cutting the real value of private investorsbond holdings by some 70 процент.

FIFTEEN BILLION MORE?

The chief negotiator for private creditors in the debt swap deal, Чарльз Даллара, urged a ‘Yes’ голосование, saying the deadlines allowedno room for slippage.

In comments published on Saturday, Dallara, who is managing director of the International Institute of Finance (IIF), said private creditors were committed to a voluntary agreement and that he expected avery high participation rate.

It is important for lawmakers to understand what is at stake,” Dallara told Kathimerini newspaper.

Lawmakers need to approve the deal by Sunday, otherwise the country will not make a February 17 deadline to submit the debt swap offer to its private-sector bondholders, Finance Minister Evangelos Venizelos said on Saturday.

Euro zone finance ministers have told Greece that by then it must also explain how 325 миллионов евро ($430 миллион) out of this year’s total budget cuts will be achieved before it agrees to the bailout.

Bailout documents released on Friday left blank the amount of the rescue. Венизелос сказал 15 billion euros more might be needed to rescue the country’s banks, confirming estimates from EU officials.

The EU and IMF have been exasperated by a series of broken promises and weeks of wrangling over the bailout. They will not release the aid without clear commitments by the main party leaders that reforms will be implemented, whoever is in power.

The uncertainty has upset world financial markets, with stocks snapping a five-day winning streak on Friday and the euro tumbling.

Законопроект, approved by the cabinet on Friday along with hundreds of pages of accompanying documents, sets out reforms including a 22 percent cut in the minimum wage, pension cuts worth 300 million euros this year, as well as health and defense spending cuts.

The government promised to speed up implementation of reforms in the labor, product and services markets, cut spending, and push through a privatization plan. ($1 = 0.7582 евро)
