  • [01] Gov't sees firms keeping retail prices flat despite oil price hike

    Development Minister Dimitris Sioufas said on Tuesday that he expected producers to absorb the brunt of a sharp rise in global oil prices, avoiding passing the increase down to consumers, which could jeopardise their market stake.

    After a round of consultations with sector representatives, Sioufas told reporters that none had raised the issue of price hikes.

    At the same time, the government was not seeking a "gentlemen's agreement" on price hikes, as the method would only conceal problems, not resolve them, Sioufas said.

    In addition, many companies had shown interest in boosting exports to the Balkans, taking advantage of incentives in three laws that were passed recently, the minister added.

    The Greek national defence minister, speaking on Tuesday to students of the Academy of Military Sciences in Beijing, referred to the contribution of the armed forces in the safety of the Olympic Games.

    He said the Greek government proves and strengthens, within the framework of its development policy, Greece's advantages in the sectors of shipping and tourism, utilising with planning and programming, the post-Olympic Games period, aimed at the highest possible benefit for the Greek citizens.

    The minister reiterated that Greece categorically condemns terrorism from wherever it comes from, and as an important factor of peace and security in the region of the Balkans, the eastrern Mediterranean and the Middle East, contributes to the efforts of the international community for the combatting of terrorism.

    Concluding his official visit to China on Tuesday, the Greek defence minister met with Chinese Popular Congress Vice-President He Luli, during which the good climate in bilateral relations was reiterated.
