  • [01] PM confers with Aegean-Island Policy minister

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis met on Wednesday with Aegean and Island Policy Minister Aristotelis Pavlidis.

    Pavlidis told reporters after the meeting that he briefed the prime minister on the programmes in progress and particularly on the support programme for small islands being advanced in parliament through a draft bill.

    The programme provides for an overall economic support of initially 120 million euros through EU funds and concerns 44 small islands in the Aegean and the Ionian Sea.

    Pavlidis stated that they discussed the planning of the special programmes' funding, pointing out that the southern Aegean is "not included" under "target one" the 4th Community Support Framework, and that a special discussion on the issue is underway with the Finance Ministry.

    He also stated that they discussed health and education programmes in progress.
