  • [01] PM Karamanlis briefed by agriculture minister

    Prime minister Costas Karamanlis met on Tuesday with agricultural development minister Sotiris Hatzigakis, who assured afterwards that there will be no cutbacks whatsoever in reinforcements in the farming sector.

    He said the ministry had a large agricultural land registry, which would forecast and ensure the farming income and reinforcements through the upgrading of the sector's two main organisations already in operation, the OPEKEPE and the AGROGI.

    Hatzigakis said that they also discussed the major land improvement projects, given that the ministry was already pushing ahead an ambitious program that will enable Greek agriculture to meet the modern-day demands and conditions.

    They further discussed legislation concerning the ministry's specialised staff, protection of breeding stock, and other items.

    "We more generally discussed ways so that the ministry will become a productive, developmental and competitive unit that will meet the modern-day demands," Hatzigakis added.

    [02] Swine flu cases in Greece up to 162

    Six new cases of A/H1N1 novel influenza or swine flu have raised the total of confirmed cases in Greece to 162, of which 70 have fully recovered and the rest are still being treated. All the new cases again concerned individuals that had recently entered the country from abroad or had come into contact with a confirmed case.

    Authorities are also investigating the people that came into contact with a patient admitted to a hospital in Rio, who was later found to be positive for the swine flu virus.
