  • [01] Papoulias, Karamanlis attend ANA event commemorating agency's 100 years of operation

    The Athens News Agency (ANA) on Wednesday celebrated the 100-year anniversary since its establishment with a high-profile event and photo exhibition at the Zappeion Hall of downtown Athens, an event attended by President of the Republic Karolos Papoulias and Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis.

    Several past and present ministers, deputies, newspaper editors and reporters, party representatives, as well as Parliament President Anna Psarouda-Benaki and former premier Constantine Mitsotakis, also attended the commemoration.

    In his address, Minister of State and government spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos praised the ANA's role in supplying expatriate Greek media with news, while he also called the Greek national news agency a "guarantor" for the dissemination of real news stories, "ones that have a place in our lives."

    Roussopoulos also underlined the transparency that defines the ANA's operation, as he said, noting that links to both the state and to the private sector are absolutely crystal clear.

    "The ANA's work was significant for newsgathering in Greece. For a very long time it was (Greece's) only window to the world for foreign news as well as a primary source for domestic news, not just for Athens' major newspapers but primarily for the mass media in the provinces..." ANA General Director George Tambakopoulos said.

    On his part, former long-time general director Andreas Christodoulides noted that the most important development for the ANA after the restoration of democracy in Greece (1974) was the fact that it continuously improved its credibility, "and today it is considered as a small, professional and credible national news agency".
