  • [01] Tsitouridis meets French counterpart

    Labour and Social Insurances Minister Savvas Tsitouridis met in Paris on Monday with his French counterpart Gerard Larcher, with talks focusing on workplace-related issues and employment, all ahead of Tuesday's EU ministers' council in Brussels.

    Afterwards, both ministers said they agreed over the need to safeguard employees' health and safety in the workplace and to avoid promoting initiatives that damage Europe's social model.

    Tsitouridis will represent the Greek side in Brussels.

    [02] First day of stricter EU security measures

    Transport and Communications Minister Michalis Liapis on Monday toured Athens' Eleftherios Venizelos International Airport to observe, first hand, new EU-wide security measures in airports across the Union.

    Liapis toured the departure and hand luggage control areas and was briefed on the measures taken as part of a EU decision banning the carrying of most liquids by passengers aboard airliners.

    An increased number of airport personnel on duty during the first day of the latest and stricter measures apparently reduced the inconvenience for passengers, Liapis said.
