    WASHINGTON D.C. (ANA - S. Politis) - National Economy Minister Nikos Christodoulakis on Sunday pointed out the positive course of the Greek economy, during his address to the International Monetary Fund's annual meeting here.

    The Greek minister, who is representing the European Union's eurozone countries, stressed that Greece's GDP growth rates will close the year at 3.8 per cent and forecasted a 4.1 per cent for 2003.

    He said that inflation in the country remained higher than the eurozone's average, adding that it was a cause for concern.

    [02] Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch arrives in Athens

    29/09/2002 22:32:05

    Orthodox Ecumenical Patriarch Vartholomeos arrived in Athens on Sunday and immediately made his way to the Athens Archepiscopate for a dinner given by Archbishop of Athens and All Greece Christodoulos.

    Upon his arrival, Vartholomeos expressed his pleasure to be back in Athens, saying that there was a spiritual umbilical cord between the Holy See of Constantinople (Istanbul) and the Church of Greece.

    Christodoulos, who met the patriarch at Athens airport at the head of a Holy Synod delegation, expressed the satisfaction and joy of the Church of Greece for the Patriarch's visit.

    Vartholomeos has a busy schedule of engagements in Athens before his departure on Wednesday, including meetings with the country's state and political leadership, a ceremony at the Athens Agricultural University on Monday where he is to be made honorary professor and a meeting with UNESCO Good Will Ambassador Marianna Vardinoyiannis shortly before he leaves on Wednesday, during which they will discuss initiatives to help street children and children in Africa, as well as the Patriarch's environmental projects.

    [03] EU cannot expand without Cyprus, Parl't speaker reiterates

    29/09/2002 22:23:30

    Cyprus' accession to the European Union would be a unique historic opportunity to establish peace, security and collective progress for all the inhabitants of the island republic, Parliament Speaker Apostolos Kaklamanis said on Sunday.

    He once again stressed that the Greek Parliament would not ratify any enlargement of the EU that did not include Cyprus, stressing that it had a right to join.

    Kaklamanis made the statements during a ceremony to name the Kiato 2nd Primary School after Evagoras Pallikaridis, a Cypriot teenager who fought against the British colonial rule and was eventually hanged by the colonial forces in the 1950s.
