  • [01] PM and transport minister discuss ministry issues

    Transport and Communications Minister Mihalis Liapis was received by Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis at his offices in the Maximos Mansion on Wednesday and briefed him on issues concerning his ministry.

    Liapis said the discussion had covered matters related to Olympic Airlines following a decision by arbitrators and the changes underway at the Greek Railways Organisation (OSE), as well as the road safety bill.

    Later on, while outlining the government's plans for the further privatisation of Hellenic Telecommunications Organisation (OTE) on the fourth day of the ongoing Parliamentary debate for the 2007 budget, Liapis stressed that this was expected to boost competition in the telecoms market and benefit consumers.

    "We are seeking a strategic alliance with a private investor but also to adapt OTE's management to conditions in the deregulated telecommunications market, in order to further boost competition between companies," he said.

    He underlined that any strategic partner found would have to be able to guarantee this increase in competition and revealed that the government had hired three consultants to explore the possibilities in international markets.

    The minister also noted plans to separate the various functions of the Greek Railways Organisation (OSE), stressing that 2007 would be a landmark year in Greece for railways and road safety, as a result of a new traffic code designed to limit accidents and save lives.
