  • [01] Tsipras says SYRIZA disagrees with LARCO's shrinking

    ANA/MPA--Main opposition Radical Left Coalition (SYRIZA) leader Alexis Tsipras expressed the party's absolute disagreement with LARCO's shrinking and privatisation during his meeting with the firm's unions on Tuesday.

    Tsipras said SYRIZA is "radically opposed to the shrinking and privatisation of LARKO that the Samaras-Venizelos government is promoting jointly with the troika, because first of all considerable national wealth is being sold out since the business is the only one in the EU that produces excellent quality nickel, exploiting its own local deposits having a total value of about 25 billion euros, meaning a large part of strategic importance of our country's mineral wealth."

    At the same time, he added, LARCO's shrinking and privatisation will create great economic and social harm for the local societies of six prefectures in the country, endangering about 6,000 jobs in such a difficult period for the Greek people.

    SYRIZA supports the struggle of LARCO's employees "to prevent the great national, economic and social crime of its shrinking and privatisation and believes that the most effective way is their coordination with the struggles of other employees for the overthrow of the government, the troika and their memorandums," the SYRIZA leader said.

    [02] DIMAR leader in Thessaloniki

    ANA/MPA--Democratic Left (DIMAR) leader Fotis Kouvelis will pay an official visit to Thessaloniki on Wednesday and Thursday.

    His schedule on Wednesday includes successive meetings with young farmers (6:00 pm), employees of former state broadcaster ERT (7:15 pm), and with mayor Yiannis Boutaris (8:00 pm) at the town hall, to be followed by an address to members and supporters of DIMAR on the same premises.

    On Thursday, Kouvelis will be meeting successively with the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) board of directors (11:00 am), then give a press conference at the premises (N. Germanos Bldg, Hall C) at 12:00 noon. Before returning to Athens, he will also meet with University of Thessaloniki rector Yiannis Mylopoulos, at 6:00 pm.

    [03] Regional airports tendering enters second phase with seven investment formations

    ANA/MPA--The Hellenic Republic Assets Development Fund (TAIPED) has proceeded with the approval of seven investment groups that will continue in the second phase of tendering for the granting of the right to use, manage, develop, extend, maintain and exploit Regional Airports that are separated into two groups.

    Investments are expected to be implemented through the utilisation procedure that will contribute to increasing the potential of regional airports, improving the level of services for users of the airports and the subsequent strengthening of Greek regions' tourist activity and economic growth.

    During the second phase of tendering, the shortlisted investors will obtain access to details and the terms of the tendering procedure.
