  • [01] Crucial week for economy

    A crucial week for the Greek economy begins on Tuesday, as the Middle-term program and the package of privatisations must be itemized for tabling in parliament by mid-May and vote by early June after deliberations with the EU-IMF 'troika'.

    Prime minister George Papandreou returns to Athens on Monday from a brief Easter holiday respite on the island of Hydra.

    A team of troika experts is due in early May for its regular consultations and evaluation of progress ahead of the disbursement of the next tranche (12 billion euros) of the EU-IMF 110 billion euro bailout loan to Greece.

    Eurostat, the European Commission's statistical agency, is also due to release on Tuesday the figures for the 2010 deficit.

    [02] 'Cycladic Art' in Turkey

    (ANA-MPA)-The first-ever Cycladic Art exhibition in Turkey will take place in May, at the noted Sakip Sabanci Museum, with 68 artifacts that will travel to Turkey from Greece, on loan from the collections of the Goulandris Museum of Cycladic Art and the National Archaeological Museum.

    The artifacts, comprising Cycladic figurines, clay pots and marble and bronze items from the two Greek museums will make the journey to Istanbul following the recent approval by Greece's Central Archaeological Council (KAS).(ANA-MPA)

    This will be the first exhibition of Cycladic art ever held in Turkey, according to Cycladic Art Museum director Prof. Nicholas Stampolidis, who had the idea for the exhibition.(ANA-MPA)

    Stampolidis told ANA-MPA that the exhibition will cover the period from 3200 BC to 2600 BC, beginning from the Early Bronze Age (3200 BC), while another 200 artifacts from Turkey that will be on display, coming from Turkish state foundations such as the Archaeological Museums of Istanbul, Izmir and Troy, among others, will underline the similarities and differences between the two regions, both cultural and commercial, at the peak of the Cycladic civilisation in the 3rd millennium BC.(ANA-MPA)

    The exhibition, which will be inaugurated on May 23, will run through August 28.(ANA-MPA)

    [03] Homeless shelter

    A shelter for Athens' homeless will begin operation later in the year, in the city center, an employment ministry official told ANA-MPA.

    The shelter, which aims to meet the immediate needs of the homeless, will be open to all homeless regardless of age, gender and nationality and will provide beds, food and clothing, as well as hygiene care.

    Situated near the Larissis Station, the facility is provided by the City of Athens, while its equipping will be financed by the employment and social security ministry in the framework of actions foreseen under the cooperation accord signed between the ministry and Archbishop Ieronymos of Athens and All Greece.

    The facility will be operated by the Athens Archdioce's NGO "Apostoli" (Mission).

    The shelter will be able to house approximately 450 per day, and will function from noon to 7:00 the following morning, at which time it will close for cleaning and other maintenance work.

    The 'guests' will be supplied with a special card, and may use the shelter's services once per week in order to facilitate the largest number of needy people possible.
