  • [01] Bad loans will not be sold to foreign funds, gov't spokeswoman says

    ANA/MPA---"The left policy is a realistic policy, with whatever measures needed regularly in laws that will serve the interests of majority," government spokeswoman Olga Gerovassili said in an interview with Praktorio 104.9 FM on Tuesday.

    Gerovassili underlined that realism and sincerity are the main features of the left party.

    In another interview with ANT1, she said: "Bad loans will not be sold to foreign funds. This is a commitment and it has been announced by Economy Minister Giorgos Stathakis." She added that among the government's top priorities is the legislation on bad loans and the protection of first residence.

    Gerovassili noted that the government is now obliged to immediately implement a first series of measures ahead of the first evaluation. "This is very very important, this is the first important step, so that the debt issue opens after the evaluation along with the recapitalizations of the banks."

    She also referred to the government's efforts to find equivalent measures for the 23 percent VAT on private education and expressed optimism that these will be found.

    The government spokeswoman noted that the banks recapitalization that is expected to be successfully completed will put an end to the threat of a deposits haircut.

    Regarding the new tax measures, she said that it will burden more those who were benefited in the previous years.

    [02] Group exhibition launches Le Corbusier tribute in Athens

    ANA-MPA -- A group exhibition held as a tribute to the pioneering Swiss-French architect Le Corbusier, a founding figure of the modernist architecture movement, opens its doors in the Athens district of Kypseli (Kykladon 8) on Tuesday evening, at the Spiteri/Proveleggios House. The exhibition "In the name of Le Corbusier" launches a series of events that will be held in the autumn of 2015 until the spring of 2016 in Athens to market the 50th anniversary since Le Corbusier's death. "Why Le Corbusier? He played a tremendous role in architecture, the arts and letters, urban planning in the 20th century. He became a global figure and had a very close relationship with Greece. A relationship that gives him a special role when we refer to Greek architecture and Greece's relations with the international architectural scene," noted National Technical University of Athens (NTUA) Professor Panagiotis Tournikiotis, who helped organise the exhibition. Tournikiotis highlighted Le Corbusier's love of the Greek landscape and environment, both that of Greek antiquity and in the unique architecture of the Cyclades islands and also his hugely influential lecture held in front of the NTUA in 1933, when he was head of the 4th International Congress on Modern Architecture. "This was so great that since 1930, even before the congress, and until his death in 1965, 18 Greek architects and civil engineers went to Paris to work with him. Some of them were famous, such as Aristomenes Proveleggios, who was the architect of this house and Yiannis Xenakis," he noted. The events in Greece are co-organised or supported partly or totally by the French Institute, the Swiss Embassy, the Greek Docomomo and other cultural or scientific entities.
