The decision to revamp the course, considered an important element of the island’s effort to develop alternative forms of tourism, was announced after
a recent meeting between EOT general secretary Evgenios Yiannakopoulos and Rhodes prefectural authorities.
Yiannakopoulos said the project would start from scratch, with the calling of an international tender that will be announced in European newspapers.
Following the publicising of the competition within the month, investors will then be able to submit their proposals, though without the limitations of the past.
If the procedure runs smoothly, an investment plan and investor will have been chosen within four to five months’ time, Yiannakopoulos said.
