    [02] Eurogroup conference call Tuesday on Greek debt buy-back

    AMNA--Eurozone finance ministers will hold a telephone conference on Tuesday on the Greek debt buy-back process -- which has been extended by 24 hours until noon on Tuesday, London time -- ahead of their Eurogroup meeting on Thursday in Brussels.

    "The will discuss the buy-back of the Greek debt," Eurogroup president Jean-Claude Juncker told French news agency AFP.

    The conference call will be held late in the afternoon on Tuesday, while on Thursday the eurozone finance ministers are slated to give the go-ahead for the disbursement of a 34.4 billion euro tranche of the EU/IMF bailout package to Greece.amna

    The International Monetary Fund (IMF) has made the release of its proportion of the tranche conditional to a successful completion of the debt buy-back process. The Europeans, however, have intimated that they will approve the disbursement of the tranche.

    [03] Ski resorts in Greece open

    AMNA--The snowfall in northern Greece combined with the low temperatures gave the opportunity to a large number of ski resorts to open before the Christmas holidays.

    The snow season was inaugurated last weekend at the ski resorts of Karpenissi, Vassilitsa, Pisoderi and Kaimaktsalan.

    The thick snow that has fallen has covered the pistes in white and the skiers can now enjoy their downhills not only on the weekends but throughout the entire week.

    The ski resorts of Kalavryta and 3-5 Pigadia have completed maintenance work and are ready to open, probably this weekend if the snow coverage is satisfactory.

    Moreover, the works at the ski resorts of Seli, Elatohori, Metsovo and Falakro have been completed and they are ready to open in the coming days.
