For this goal, on the behalf of Jordan, spoke the journalist Deppy Chiotopoulou, an agent of the largest newspaper in Northern Greece and the magazine <>, and also one of the speakers was Father Grigorios, the head of the school of Theology in Thessaloniki. When it came to her speech, the journalist promoted all the tourist destinations that can be found in Jordan, depicting each city for its interests and its picturesque beauties. She also stressed the exceptional hospitality of the Jordanian people and the security that the visitor feels when visiting the country. Father Grigorios, on his behalf, having already participated on a mission organized by the Jordan Tourism Board, he presented the religious sites of Jordan which still remain unknown to most of the Greek pilgrims.
