  • [01] PM attends delivery of 52 vans for people facing walking problems

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Monday attended the delivery of 52 vans for people facing walking problems at the Olympic Sailing Centre at Agios Kosmas, which are part of the mobile property of the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

    "The Olympic and Paralympic Games left us a huge material and immaterial heritage. It is our duty to utilise it to the greatest possible degree," Karamanlis said in an address.

    "Olympic real estate will become a lever of development for the regions in which they are located, but it will also improve the daily lives of citizens. Mobile property is being distributed to social agencies, while the cost is 120 million euros. 450 nine-seater vans are being distributed to municipalities, communities, clinics and schools in all the regions of the country. It is one of the measures we owe to people with disabilities. We are working to combat social prejudice," the prime minister said, adding that "it is necessary that we utilise this property. We must provide a continuation to attitudes emanating from culture. In the summer of 2004 it left greater expectations for society and greater responsibilities for the state. Much remains to be done still, but we are proceeding on the path of responsibility."
