    SKOPJE (ANA-M.Vihou) - The Balkan and Black Sea Business Centre has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Skopje Chamber of Commerce, officials said on Sunday.

    The main opposition New Democracy party will clamp down on crime if it wins national elections on April 9, its chairman, Costas Karamanlis, said in Ioannina on Sunday.

    "This is a problem that affects the Greek regions and underprivileged neighbourhoods in the big cities ... New Democracy's priority is unrelentingly to crack down on crime," said Karamanlis.

    He was addressing one of many local party meetings being held around the country to prepare for ND's national congress in March.

    Greece emerged from isolation, shed its debts and moved towards the 11-member euro zone during the ruling PASOK party's term in government, Prime Minister Costas Simitis said.

    "We took Greece out of isolation. We are opening new horizons. The era has passed when we had an over-endebted state that sought a prop among the powerful, that was dependent on loans," Simitis, also chairman of PASOK, told residents of the northern town of Xanthi on Saturday evening.

    National Economy and Finance Minister Yiannos Papantoniou said on Sunday that the ruling PASOK party would ease tight economic policies to aid the public if it wins national elections on April 9.

    In an interview to the Sunday Ethnos newspaper, Papantoniou said a new PASOK government would take a softer line on incomes and taxation, reflecting the party's desire to distribute the nation's wealth more equitably.
