    With Theresa May about to trigger Article 50 and the UK set to start two years of Brexit negotiations with the rest of the EU, how is the country’s economy doing?

    Before the referendum last June, many economists produced gloomy forecasts which have since been proved wrong. Consumers’ confidence has not suffered, and by and large, things have gone on as before.

    However, the UK has not actually left the EU yet – the real change may only happen once it does.

    The current uncertainty, ahead of talks between the UK and the rest of the EU, over what form Brexit will take is an issue for many firms when it comes to investment planning.

    Economy

    The UK economy grew by more than previously reported in the final three months of 2016, according to the latest official estimate.

    Gross domestic product (GDP) increased by 0.7%, up from 0.6%, according to the Office for National Statistics (ONS).

    The upward revision is mainly due to the manufacturing industry having done better than thought.

    The ONS cut its estimate for growth in 2016 as a whole to 1.8%, down from the 2% it forecast last month.

    There are hints that Brexit uncertainty is hitting business confidence. The ONS also said there had been a slowdown in business investment, which fell by 1% compared with the three months to the end of September.

    Growth in the UK’s service sector eased to a five-month low in February, according to a closely watched survey.

    The Markit/CIPS purchasing managers’ index (PMI) for services fell to 53.3, down from 54.5 in January. However, it remains above the 50 threshold that separates growth from contraction.

    Meanwhile, the UK’s independent budget watchdog, the Office for Budget Responsibility (OBR) recently revised up its growth forecast for this year from 1.4% to 2%.

    However, it expects growth to then slow to 1.6% next year.

    The pound and share prices

    The pound fell dramatically after the Brexit vote last year, and since then has been trading around 15% lower compared to the dollar and 12% lower compared to the euro than it was before the referendum.

    The fall in the pound has helped exporters but it has made foreign holidays more expensive for British tourists.

    It has also increased import costs for manufacturers (see Trade below) which is a key factor for sectors such as the car industry, where vehicles which may be completed in the UK often have imported component parts.

    Record low UK interest rates have also contributed to a weaker pound.

    When Parliament passed the Brexit bill allowing the prime minister to trigger Article 50 and start the Brexit negotiations, the pound hit an eight-week low against the dollar.

    Currency strategists say that sterling is likely to remain volatile in the coming months until there is greater clarity about the UK’s Brexit deal.

    The pound may have weakened but investor confidence as measured by UK share prices is holding up well – UK stockmarkets have risen since last summer.

    The FTSE 100 has risen 16% since the eve of the referendum.

    Much of this could be linked to the pound’s decline. As big companies’ profits are often international and calculated in dollars, they would automatically rise when converted back into the weaker pound.

    Yet there is a similar picture when looking at the mid-range FTSE 250, which includes many firms focused on the domestic market. This index is now about 11% higher than it was on 23 June 2016.

    Interest rates

    Importantly, many forecasts of immediate economic gloom if the UK voted to leave the EU were proved wrong. They did not take into account possible compensatory action by the Bank of England in the wake of a Brexit vote.

    After the referendum the Bank of England took steps to boost the economy. In particular it cut interest rates from 0.5% to 0.25% in August – the first reduction in the cost of borrowing since 2009 – taking UK rates to a new record low.

    Rates are unlikely to go up any time soon. This month’s Budget provided little stimulus for the economy via tax breaks or spending announcements, so the Bank is more likely to keep rates on hold, because raising them could affect growth.

    However, at the most recent meeting of the Bank’s interest rate-setting committee, one member of the Monetary Policy Committee did vote for a rate rise.

    House prices

    UK house prices accelerated in February rising by 4.5% in a year, according to the Nationwide, and by 5.1%, according to the Halifax.

    “Housing demand is being supported by an economy that continues to perform well with employment still expanding,” said Martin Ellis, Halifax housing economist.

    But the rate at which house prices are rising has slowed significantly, nearly halving since spring 2016. The outlook for the market is uncertain, with the Nationwide predicting a 2% rise in UK house prices over the course of 2017.

    Migration

    Net migration to the UK dropped to 273,000 in the year to September 2016, down 49,000 from the previous year.

    The Office for National Statistics said it was the first time in two years the balance of people arriving and leaving the UK had dipped below 300,000.

    Published in February, this is the first data to include migration estimates following the EU referendum.

    Immigration was estimated to be 596,000; of these 268,000 were EU citizens, 257,000 non-EU citizens and 71,000 were British citizens.

    Some 323,000 people are thought to have left the UK in the same period, up by 26,000 on the previous year.

    Of these, 103,000 were EU citizens, 93,000 non-EU citizens and 128,000 British citizens.

    Trade

    The UK has long been running a trade deficit, meaning that overall it imports more than it exports, and both imports and exports have been boosted by the weaker pound.

    UK exports and imports both rose in January – by £400m and £300m respectively – leaving the trade deficit in goods and services steady and unchanged from December 2016 at £2.0bn, the ONS said.

    However, the ONS also said that in 2016, excluding oil and other erratic commodities (such as ships, aircraft, precious stones, silver and non-monetary gold) the underlying trend in trade in goods was a widening of the deficit.

    The chart below shows that the UK does sell more services abroad than are imported – but this is not enough to counter the bigger deficit in the value of the goods sold abroad, compared with the value of the goods imported.

    Construction

    House building has slowed to a six-month low as costs have soared, due largely to a weaker pound.

    However, output in the construction industry overall has risen for the sixth consecutive month in February, led by civil engineering.

    Some firms say that rising input costs have had an effect on decision making and have led to delays in contracts being completed.

    Jobs and wages

    The unemployment rate has been falling steadily over the last five years, as the UK recovered from the global financial crisis, which saw up to two million jobs lost, according to one report.

    Wages have been growing faster than inflation in recent months, though the gap is narrowing, leading to warnings of squeezed incomes.

    In the three months to January, regular pay increased by 2.3%, compared with the same period a year earlier. That was sharply lower than the 2.6% seen in the three months to December.

    Meanwhile, inflation currently stands at 1.8%, up from 1.6% a month ago.

    Real income growth is now running at 0.6%.

    “If the incomes squeeze translates into falling consumer confidence, then the main driver of the better-than-expected economic news since the referendum could turn more negative,” says the BBC’s economics editor Kamal Ahmed.

    Tourism Industry- A Special Focus on India, Economy Watch, economy travel.#Economy

    Tourism Industry- A Special Focus on India

    June 29, 2010 • India Industries • by EconomyWatch

    India s tourism industry is experiencing a strong period of growth, driven by the burgeoning Indian middle class, growth in high spending foreign tourists, and coordinated government campaigns to promote Incredible India .

    The tourism industry in India is substantial and vibrant, and the country is fast becoming a major global destination. India s travel and tourism industry is one of them most profitable industries in the country, and also credited with contributing a substantial amount of foreign exchange. This is illustrated by the fact that during 2006, four million tourists visited India and spent US $8.9 billion.

    Several reasons are cited for the growth and prosperity of India s travel and tourism industry. Economic growth has added millions annually to the ranks of India s middle class, a group that is driving domestic tourism growth. Disposable income in India has grown by 10.11% annually from 2001-2006, and much of that is being spent on travel.

    Thanks in part to its booming IT and outsourcing industry a growing number of business trips are made by foreigners to India, who will often add a weekend break or longer holiday to their trip. Foreign tourists spend more in India than almost any other country worldwide. Tourist arrivals are projected to increase by over 22% per year through till 2010, with a 33% increase in foreign exchange earnings recorded in 2004.

    The Tourism Ministry has also played an important role in the development of the industry, initiating advertising campaigns such as the ‘Incredible India’ campaign, which promoted India s culture and tourist attractions in a fresh and memorable way. The campaign helped create a colorful image of India in the minds of consumers all over the world, and has directly led to an increase in the interest among tourists.

    The tourism industry has helped growth in other sectors as diverse as horticulture, handicrafts, agriculture, construction and even poultry.

    Both directly and indirectly, increased tourism in India has created jobs in a variety of related sectors. The numbers tell the story: almost 20 million people are now working in the India s tourism industry.

    India s governmental bodies have also made a significant impact in tourism by requiring that each and every state of India have a corporation to administer support issues related to tourism.

    A new growth sector is medical tourism. It is currently growing at around 30% per annum. Medical tourist arrivals are expected to reach one million soon.

    Medical tourism in Asia has grown rapidly. Medical tourism is approaching fever pitch at the tune of $4 Billion US, fueled largely by the cosmetic surgery market. One of the problems India has, despite having some world-class hospitals, is sanitation.

    The tourism industry of India is based on certain core nationalistic ideals and standards which are: Swaagat or welcome, Sahyog or cooperation, Soochanaa or information, Sanrachanaa or infrastructure, Suvidha or facilitation, Safaai or cleanliness and Surakshaa or security.

    Economy class plane tickets #travel #agents

    #economy travel
    #

    The advantages of economy class

    Economy class plane tickets are offered by most airlines in the World, you’re more likely to find free economy class seats than those on superior classes.

    Low cost airlines are getting more and more popular, but they’re still behind the conventional airlines, which are reducing operational costs too, in order to keep up with the competition.

    In your hunt for cheap plane tickets, check the economy class plane ticket offers of the major airlines. They will often have discounts, as well as frequent flyer programs, these usually lack in the case of the low fare carriers.

    Economy class ticket prices vary from hour to hour, from day to day, according to your departure. Yes, this happens in general when you search tickets, but economy class plane tickets can often cost as little as the low cost airlines’ tickets. Or even less! And the comfort level is significantly better on economy than on low cost flights.

    Economy class flights are still the most popular amongst budget airplane travel means. never leave them out in favor of the more marketed low fare flights.

    Romanian Economy – Official Travel and Tourism Information #arc #travels

    #economy travel
    #

    Economy

    For many centuries Romania’s economy was based on agriculture. In the 1930s Romania was one of the main European producers of wheat, corn and meats and it used to be called the bread basket of Europe. In the 1950s the communist leader of Romania, Gheorghe Gheorghiu Dej, began developing heavy industry.

    There has been a shift towards heavy industries since the 1970s but the agriculture is still economically important and employs about one-third of the workforce.

    Romania produces coal, natural gas, iron ore and petroleum but most raw material for the country’s large industrial capacity potential are imported. Prominent industries include chemical (petrochemical, paints and varnishes), metal processing, machine manufacturing, industrial and transport equipment, textiles, manufactured consumer goods, lumbering and furniture.

    39.2% of Romania’s territory is arable land, 28% forests, 21% pastures, hayfields and orchards and 2.5% vineyards. Corn, wheat, vegetable oil seeds, vegetables, apples and grapes for wine are the main crops and sheep and pigs the main livestock. Forestry and fisheries are being developed under long-term programs. Since 1990, successive governments have concentrated on turning Romania into a market economy.

    Mood Lighting and Menu Service in Economy! Virgin Atlantic’s Classy New

    Mood Lighting and Menu Service in Economy. Virgin Atlantic’s Classy New Upgrade

    March 27, 2015

    Flying economy on Virgin Atlantic just got a whole lot better. (Photo: Virgin Atlantic)

    Millions of people make the famous New York to London flight annually. It’s a journey of 3,459 miles, and one that now takes a mere six hours when tail winds are in your favor.

    But over the past few years, there seems to have been a focus on improving the flying experience for those in First or Business class on long flights. Those of us who usually sit at the back of the plane have noticed our seats getting tighter, and the economy cabin feeling more cramped, all to make the cabins at the front of the plane more spacious.

    But not anymore. Enter the Boeing 787 Dreamliner for Virgin Atlantic.

    This plane has been in service for other airlines for a couple of years, but this week, Virgin launched its New York to London route—and hopes to have 21 of these planes in service by 2018. But the thing that makes Virgin’s version of this spectacular vessel different is where they’ve placed a lot of their focus: the Economy cabin.

    Don’t get me wrong. The Upper Class cabin is still impeccable. But here are five reasons why the Virgin Atlantic Dreamliner, nicknamed “Dream Jeannie,” may now be the best way to fly transatlantic….in economy.

    1. There’s more space.

    The Dreamliner was built with more space in mind. Everything looks and feels bigger. The cabin height is several feet higher than it is on other planes, due to an impressive vaulted ceiling. The aisles are wider. The overhead bins are larger, but placed higher up to avoid those awkward head-banging incidents that anyone over 5’ 5” will have certainly experienced. The seats are designed to be thinner, meaning they take up less room, providing several inches more leg room. Plus, the seats pitch back further for a much more comfortable experience. Even the toilets feel bigger. I swear, there’s enough room to swing a cat in there, which is a serious rarity in the usually-coffin-like airplane bathrooms. Virgin has managed to provide passengers with an innovative Economy cabin that feels spacious and airy, resulting in a much more comfortable journey.

    Look at all that leg room! (Photo: Virgin Atlantic)

    2. There’s great wireless.

    People are very attached to their mobile technology, and Virgin has taken note. The plane is fully wired for wireless services that even work when you are flying over the middle of the Atlantic. For around $20, you can stay connected to the outside world for the duration of the flight, meaning you can update your Facebook status and check your email from 38,000 feet.

    To coincide with the Dreamliner launch, Virgin even announced the #SkyhighSelfie, offering passengers the opportunity to update their Facebooks from the air, free of charge.

    And to make sure that you are never left short when it comes to your battery life, every single seat on the plane has power access via USB, so you can charge your phone or tablet during the journey.

    3. There’s mood lighting. Yes, mood lighting.

    Jetlag sucks. And it has the potential to ruin your trip. Whether you travel for business or pleasure, being able to adjust to the new time zone is vital to your overall experience. As any frequent traveler knows, the best way to trick your circadian clock—the fancy term for your internal body clock—is through light therapy, where you trick your body into thinking it’s a different time by exposing it to light at specific times.

    Sound complicated? Thanks to Virgin Atlantic, it won’t be.

    The new Dreamliner has been outfitted with a revolutionary new ambient mood lighting system throughout the main cabin, designed to help passengers adjust to the changing timezones—and that’s because it changes color throughout the flight. The light begins at a soft “rose champagne” color as people board, to help them de-stress and relax. It then changes into “purple haze” to make people feel comfortable and cozy, before transitioning to “amber warmth,” which is designed to feel like candlelight for when people are dining. Lastly, it morphs into “silver moonlight” to help people fall asleep.

    It’s like seeing your flight through rose-colored glasses. (Photo: Virgin Atlantic)

    There is then an eight-minute “sunrise” sequence, too, designed to gradually wake people up in the new time zone. Not only does it work, but it looks beautiful and completely changes the aesthetic inside the cabin.

    4. It’s cleaner, quieter, and more efficient.

    For those of you worried about your carbon footprint, this plane provides quite the feel-good factor. Not only is it 60% quieter than other aircrafts of the same size, it is a lot more fuel efficient, burning approximately 20% less fuel than similarly sized planes.

    The advanced air filtration system also means that the air you breathe in the cabin is a lot cleaner. This is an amazing fact for those of us who get a bit squeamish about the thought of all the germs swimming around in the air. This system also helps increase the humidity on board. Considering that most planes in flight are more arid than a desert, this has a huge impact on everyone’s overall health and comfort during the journey.

    5. It’s all about the little things.

    There are a ton of new little touches on this plane that you will not see on others. For instance, there are full-length mirrors in the bathrooms, which not only make them feel a lot more spacious, but actually serve a purpose, allowing passengers to give themselves full-length once-overs after a long, disheveled journey.

    When you first board the plane, crew members hand out dinner menus, a service that you may only expect in Upper Class. This makes everyone on board feel special.

    And another unique innovation is the auto tint windows, which no longer have a shutter. Instead, you just push a button, and they gradually darken. It’s all very futuristic.

    Lastly, the staff is incredible. While this isn’t specific to this particular plane, it is certainly a major selling point of this airline in general. Crew members are dynamic, friendly, and extremely accommodating. It is clear that Virgin Atlantic hires staff members who love their jobs, and genuinely want to ensure that the passengers on board have an enjoyable experience.

    All these changes combined make a massive difference to the overall experience of flying in the Economy cabin on a long flight. Virgin’s launch of this plane and its new route is going to change the way airlines compete for business and loyalty. They are showing that they care about every passenger on board, not just the ones paying more for their fancy seats.

    How to Transfer a Credit Card Balance – ABC News #credit,

    How to Transfer a Credit Card Balance

    Here is what you need to know before and after a credit card balance transfer.

    Credit card balance transfers can be an invaluable tool for managing credit card debt. This tactic allows cardholders to move their debt from a card with a high interest rate to one with a lower interest rate, or no interest charges at all.

    While it’s not inherently complex to transfer a credit card balance, there are still several important things that cardholders need to be aware of before, during, and after.

    Before You Transfer a Credit Card Balance

    1. Make sure you keep up with all of your payments. This will allow you to maintain excellent credit and find a balance transfer offer with the best possible terms. The right card may be one you already have with a lower interest rate than the one you are using, or it may be a new card with a 0% APR promotional balance transfer offer. In fact, you may be able to get a promotional financing offer from one of your existing accounts, possibly in the form of a convenience check.

    2. Understand all of the terms and conditions of the balance transfer. Know what the card’s credit limit is, its interest rate on balance transfers, and what the balance transfer fee will be. Balance transfer fees are typically 3 percent of the amount transferred, but not always. Chase Slate currently has the only 0 percent APR promotional balance transfer offer with no balance transfer fee, although others can have fees as high as 5 percent.

    In the case of promotional financing offers, learn how long you have to complete a qualifying transfer, and the length of the promotional financing period. Typically, promotional balance transfer offers must be completed within 30 days to four months of the account opening, and can last from between six and 18 months. Keep in mind that even though the terms might not explicitly say so, banks will not allow balance transfers between their own accounts.

    3. Make a plan. Come up with a sound financial plan for paying down your debt. otherwise your balance transfer is just another form of postponing your obligations.

    Making the Transfer

    Contact the bank that you are transferring the balance to and ask to perform a balance transfer. Be prepared to give the account information for the other card, and the total amount you want transferred.

    After the Transfer

    Continue to make at least the minimum payment required from the old credit card, and if you have paid your entire debt, make sure to get a statement from your bank. However, keep your old account open in order to maintain a low credit utilization ratio. which will help your credit score.

    Most importantly, stick to the plan that you created to reduce your debt. Recognize that it probably will not be possible to take advantage of promotional financing offers over and over again.

    By understanding some of the nuances of balance transfers, cardholders can use these offers to save as much money as possible on their credit card interest charges.

    US credit card debt balloons to $917B: What it means #us

    US credit card debt balloons to $917B: What it means

    While rising debt issuance usually points to a strong economy, danger could be lurking ahead.

    Last year, credit card debt in the U.S. surged by approximately $71 billion to $917.7 billion, according to a new study from CardHub.com. The research also found that most of the debt accrued in 2015 came in the fourth quarter, when Americans tacked on more than $52 billion.

    “With 7 of the past 10 quarters reflecting year-over-year regression in consumer performance, evidence is mounting to support the notion that credit card users are reverting to pre-downturn bad habits,” CardHub CEO Odysseas Papadimitriou said in a statement.

    Fourth-quarter credit card debt also grew at its largest pace since the Great Recession, CardHub also said.

    “It is something we need to keep an eye on if borrowing continues to grow rapidly,” said Scott Hoyt, senior director at Moody’s Analytics. He also said the implications of rising credit card debt would be similar to what happened in the recession, “when consumers became overly leveraged.”

    David Santschi, CEO of TrimTabs Investment Research, said “it’s usually a good sign when. credit card debt is rising” because it usually means consumers are spending more money.

    However, Steve Blitz, chief economist at ITG Investment Research, said this increase is “just a signal that there’s more people working,” adding that consumers are not necessarily taking on more debt.

    “The willingness of an individual to increase their leverage is the ultimate vote of confidence in the economy,” he said.

    The U.S. economy added 2.45 million jobs last year. In 2016, more than 400,000 positions have been created as of February, with the unemployment rate holding at 4.9, its lowest level in nearly eight years.

    Nonetheless, wage growth remains stagnant. U.S. workers earned 3 cents less an hour last month.

    “The drop in February [wages] was pretty sharp,” Santschi said. “The wage situation does not get as much attention as the headline number and the unemployment rate, but it’s evidence that the economy is basically flatlining.”

    U.S. equities are lower for 2016, with the Dow Jones industrial average and the S P 500 both down more than 2 percent, while the Nasdaq composite has dropped more than 6.5 percent.

    Romanian Economy – Official Travel and Tourism Information #las #vegas #travel

    #

    Economy

    For many centuries Romania’s economy was based on agriculture. In the 1930s Romania was one of the main European producers of wheat, corn and meats and it used to be called the bread basket of Europe. In the 1950s the communist leader of Romania, Gheorghe Gheorghiu Dej, began developing heavy industry.

    There has been a shift towards heavy industries since the 1970s but the agriculture is still economically important and employs about one-third of the workforce.

    Romania produces coal, natural gas, iron ore and petroleum but most raw material for the country’s large industrial capacity potential are imported. Prominent industries include chemical (petrochemical, paints and varnishes), metal processing, machine manufacturing, industrial and transport equipment, textiles, manufactured consumer goods, lumbering and furniture.

    39.2% of Romania’s territory is arable land, 28% forests, 21% pastures, hayfields and orchards and 2.5% vineyards. Corn, wheat, vegetable oil seeds, vegetables, apples and grapes for wine are the main crops and sheep and pigs the main livestock. Forestry and fisheries are being developed under long-term programs. Since 1990, successive governments have concentrated on turning Romania into a market economy.

    What Is Premium Economy Class?

    Premium economy class seats typically offer more legroom than you’ll find in the economy section. (Photo: Stephen Schauer/Lifesize/Getty Images )

    Related Articles

    In recent years, airlines have looked for ways in which they can maximize their earning potential. While some airlines have started charging for checked baggage or charging flight change fees, many airlines also now offer a premium economy class for a higher rate. While premium economy class offers some substantive features that make it an upgrade over economy class, it should not be confused with business class.

    Difference

    Although the features in the premium economy section may differ depending on the airline and plane type, premium economy seating generally is likely to include 1 to 2 inches more seat width than in economy class, a seat that reclines 2 to 3 inches more, and adjustable headrests. The premium economy class seating also may include larger personal video screens, power ports for laptops and electronic devices, and more food choices.

    Cost

    Travelers should be prepared to pay a significant amount more for premium seating. According to a Seatguru.com study, premium economy cross-Atlantic flights that are booked in advance cost 85 percent more than normal economy-class tickets. Booking a premium economy ticket closer to the departure date might make the ticket for premium economy class drop to about 35 percent higher than a normal economy ticket. Cross-Pacific flights didn’t have as large a difference in price based on when a traveler booked his tickets; however, travelers paid about 95 percent more for premium economy class on these flights than they would have in economy class.

    Premium vs. Business Class

    Business class seating is approximately 65 percent more expensive than premium economy class seating. Business class seating also offers more than 50 percent legroom. The business class seats are able to recline more than seats in premium economy class. Travelers are more likely to find significant headrests and leg rests in business class as well. Business class travelers also have a wider variety of food and beverage choices.

    Learn about the History and Culture of Ancient and Modern Greece

    by greek.com

    ​Greece is the birthplace of democracy and a land full of culture and a rich history that offers travelers a great variety of vacation options. The entire country of Greece is a paradise for tourists who are interested in the history of art, culture and literature.

    From mainland Greece with its famous archaeological sites, to the Greek islands with their own unique flavors, Greece’s set and setting provide the ultimate vacation destination for all types of travelers. In fact, Greece has been a popular vacation spot for many centuries. From touring the ancient historical sites in Athens to the sunny Greek islands of Santorini, Crete, Corfu, and Rhodes, Greece is first on the list of anyone’s ultimate Mediterranean vacations. Ancient Greece gave us fantastic architecture and the Olympics, but today travelers go to Greece for the social life and shopping opportunities as much as they do to visit the Acropolis and Mount Olympus.

    greek.com is dedicated to maximizing your vacations and holidays in Greece and the Greek islands. Let us help you organize and plan your travel to one of Europe’s favorite holiday destinations where you will learn more about the most popular attractions in Greece and the surrounding islands. greek.com also delivers up-to-date info on hotels and accommodation suggestions as well as many other travel-related services including online hotel booking, island tour packages, cruises, car rentals, tours and scuba diving services. The best way to experience the unique beauty and culture of Greece is to tour both the mainland and the islands of this incredible Mediterranean vacation destination. In addition to Athens and Delphi on the mainland, spending a few nights at each island will allow you to fully experience each unique island on its own.

    Greece is a mountainous country located in southeastern Europe, bordered by Albania, Turkey and Bulgaria. The nation is surrounded by more than a thousand small islands, only 200 of which are populated. The history of ancient Greece gores all the way back to the powerful Minoan and Mycenaean civilizations that flourished around 3000 BC. Greece was also the site of the powerful city-state of Athens, which was the high-point of Greek civilization in 800 BC.

    Today, Greece is a modern European country, with a strong democratic government, and a developing economy. The Greek government is a parliamentary republic guided by a Democratic Constitution and the president of the republic is the head of the state, while the prime minister is the head of the Greek government. Most of the people in Greece are concentrated in the major urban areas, with Athens containing nearly a third of the country’s population. The country has always been a seafaring nation and that tradition has continued throughout its history until the present day with the Greek merchant shipping fleet being one of the largest world-wide. Greece currently owns one-seventh of the world’s shipping fleet in terms of total tonnage and is the second largest in the world behind Japan and just ahead of China and Germany. In 2000 Greece adopted the Euro as the official currency to help solidify its position as a global shipping leader.

    If you thinking of traveling to Greece, let greek.com help you plan, book and organize your ultimate Mediterranean vacation all in one convenient location. U.S. and Canadian citizens visiting Greece for any period of less than three months need only a passport for entry and there are no immunizations required either. Those wishing to spend more than three months in Greece can obtain the necessary permits at the Greek Embassy in their country of residence.
