  • [01] PM Karamanlis confers with ministers of defence, public order

    Prime minister Costas Karamanlis conferred Thursday morning with national defence minister Evangelos Meimarakis, and later with public order minister Vyron Polydoras. On Thursday night, Karamanlis will attend a reception in honour of the Diplomatic Corps at the Presidential Mansion. The first priority is commencement of the materialisation of the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) for the period 2007-2013, national economy and finance minister George Alogoskoufis said Wednesday after a meeting with the prime minister, adding that the drafting of the relevant bill was in the final stages, with its approval by the European Commission slated for the first quarter of 2007. Earlier Wednesday, the prime minister also met with culture minister George Voulgarakis to discuss matters falling under the ministry's competency.

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis held talks with Economy and Finance Minister George Alogoskoufis on Wednesday to discuss upcoming legislation being prepared by the finance ministry.

    After the meeting, Alogoskoufis said that the top priority was to start implementing the National Strategic Reference Framework (NSRF) for 2007-2013.

    The ministers said that the draft bill was now in the final stages of preparation, with the European Commission's expected to give its approval in the first trimester of 2007. It is expected to go into effect in the first half of the year, by which time the relevant legislation will have been passed.

    The National Strategic Reference Framework is a new document required by EU regulations, in which member states outline their strategy for spending Structural Funds. It relates to the overall Community Strategic Guidelines which apply to the whole of the EU. The whole process is very closely aligned to the Lisbon agenda and each NSRF has to clearly show how the actions it proposes will further the EU push for competitiveness, growth and more and better jobs with increased social cohesion.

    Karamanlis also conferred on Wednesday morning with culture minister George Voulgarakis on matters falling under the ministry's jurisdicion. Voulgarakis said after the meeting that 2008 would be the year of Greece in China, and this required the mobilisation of many ministries.
