  • [01] PM meets with Fin Min ahead of Int'l Thessaloniki Fair

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis met with Finance Minister George Alogoskoufis at Maximos Mansion on Monday ahead of the International Thessaloniki Trade Fair scheduled for early September.

    According to Alogoskoufis, the economy is faring well with a growth rate that is satisfactory and higher than the European Union average, while unemployment is lower compared with 2004, thanks to government initiatives.

    In closing, he emphasised that the government's objectives include reduction of the deficit and maintaining economic growth at current levels or higher in order to improve citizens' quality of life and to further reduce unemployment.

    [02] Theophilos elected new Jerusalem patriarch

    Theophilos, until recently Archbishop of Tabor, was unanimously elected the new Patriarch of Jerusalem by the 14 members of the Holy Synod on Monday.

    Archbishop Aristarchos of Constantini and Metropolitan Alexius of Tver who had been short-listed along with Theophilos, withdrew from the final election round.

    Theophilos, from Messinia, Greece, is 55 years old.
