Latvia (2.7 pct), Lithuania (2.5 pct) and Estonia (2.2 pct) recorded the highest quarterly percentage growth rates.

    The EU's statistics agency also said that Greek exports fell by 2.0 percent in the fourth quarter of 2005, from the previous quarter, while imports rose 4.0 percent and domestic demand grew by 1.4 percent.

    [02] PASOK Sec't visits Hellenic Defence Systems co.

    Main opposition Panhellenic Socialist Movement (PASOK) Secretary Mariliza Xenoyiannakopoulou, heading a party delegation, on Wednesday visited the installations of the Hellenic Defence Systems company and discussed with the management and employees the problems which the company is facing.

    Speaking to the employees, the PASOK Secretary said that the presence of the party's delegation "means our committment, our interest and our concern about the overall course of our country's defence industry and particularly about the Hellenic defence systems."

    "This concern is based on the fact that there is no plan and no specific strategy for the defence industry," she said.
