  • [01] Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre to perform in Athens this week

    22/09/2003 23:25:24

    The Alvin Ailey American Dance Theatre troupe is scheduled to perform at Athens' Lycabettus theatre on three nights from September 23-26, under the aegis of United States Ambassador to Greece Thomas Miller.

    The dance troupe's repertoire is strongly influenced by gospel and spiritual music that reflect the african-american roots of its Texas-born founder Alvin Ailey and last performed in Greece in September 2001.

    The performances are organised by the Athens Municipality cultural organisation.

    [02] International telecard and coin exhibition in Thessaloniki next month

    22/09/2003 23:22:52

    The 10th international telecard and coin exhibition will take place in Thessaloniki, northern Greece, on October 4-5, with the participation of dozens of business firms specialising in the sale of collectors' items from Greece and abroad, the post office service ELTA and telecommunications organisations.

    On the occasion of the exhibition's 10th anniversary, a special collectors' telecard in a limited number of copies, a commemorative series of silver Greek eurocoins and a commemorative seal and envelope from ELTA will be issued.

    The Hellenic Telecommunications Organisation (OTE) has issued more than 2,000 telecards since 1992.

    [03] Gas stations due to announce end of strike later on Monday

    22/09/2003 20:19:48

    Petrol station owners were expected late on Monday to announce the end of an indefinite strike that had begun at midnight.

    ''The decision (to end the walkout) will be taken and announced formally after a meeting of the union federation's board later today,'' said the president of the Federation of Gas Station Owners of Greece, Dimitris Makryvelias.

    The union leader was speaking to reporters after talks with Deputy Finance Minister Apostolos Fotiadis.

    The strike had been ordained after a breakdown of talks with the government on the mandatory issue of receipts for gasoline.

    Electronic cash registers are to be installed at the pumps to record gasoline sales in a move to streamline taxation.

    In addition, the development ministry has imposed a price ceiling on liquid fuel in mostly island regions to crack down on profiteering with higher fuel transportation costs as a pretext.
