Greeting letter for the 7th ARION International Guitar Festival by the Secretary General of the GNTO, Konstantinos Tsegas

Once more, the beautiful town of ancient Mithymna is proudly hosting the renowned Arion International Guitar Festival. For the 7th consecutive time, the historic town of Molyvos in Lesvos island will become the pan-European meeting point of acclaimed international artists from around Greece and the world.

Culture, music and entertainment are perfectly intertwined in this popular festival that showcases the rich archeological and cultural resources of great historical significance that the beautiful city of Molyvos has to offer.

The exponential benefits are manifold; not only for the local island economy but for Greece in general. Actions like this highlight Greece’s vast cultural wealth, enhancing our country’s tourist product. At the same time, they attract high-quality visitors that become the ideal ambassadors of Greek culture when they return to their countries.

The Ministry for Tourism, the Tourism Minister Mrs Elena Kountoura and the Greek National Tourism Organisation are always here to support such great initiatives aiming to promote our beautiful country – this unique tourism destination, called Greece – across the globe.

Congratulations and wishing you the best of success with the event.

Konstantinos Tsegas
