  • [01] Greece promotes products in Japan

    Agricultural Development and Foods Minister Evangelos Basiakos and Japan's Deputy Minister of Agriculture, Forests and Fisheries Issui Miura discussed further promoting Greek products in the Japanese market during their meeting on Thursday.

    "We talked about the efforts we are making to promote Greek, quality agricultural products, such as olives and olive oil, wine, mastic, canned peaches, tomato paste, honey, feta cheese, cotton and tobacco, which recently have been moving at an improved pace," Basiakos said after the meeting.

    On his part, Miura said that the Japanese recognise the benefits of the Mediterranean diet, a factor that will contribute to the increase in exports of Greek agricultural products to Japan.
