  • [01] ISP significantly improves funds' absorption rate

    Greek Economy and Finance Minister George Alogoskoufis on Thursday said there would be no loss of funds by an ?Information Society? business programme this year.

    Speaking to reporters, the Greek minister stressed that absorption rate of the programme surpassed 55 percent of its budget so far this year and noted that the programme was significantly restructured. Alogoskoufis said it was extremely encouraging that both citizens and businesses were increasingly acknowledging the benefits of all information projects promoted in the country. The Greek minister said the programme‚s absorption rate was 11.8 pct in March 2004.

    [02] New Athens mayor visits central market

    New Athens mayor Nikitas Kaklamanis, who officially takes over as mayor at the start of 2007, and outgoing Mayor Theodoros Behrakis on Thursday paid a joint visit to the central Varvakio meat market in Athens, to exchange New Year wishes with those working there.

    During the visit, Kaklamanis underlined the massive improvements that have taken place in the market in recent years, both in terms of infrastructure and in terms of service and quality. He pledged to iron out remaining problems with infrastructure from his position as mayor in the next two years.

    Kaklamanis also answered questions concerning the problems with rubbish disposal for the capital, stressing that the answer in the long-term did not lie in creating new landfills but in adopting new technologies for processing waste without causing atmospheric pollution.

    "In 2007, we can no longer talk about landfills. It is the time of new technologies," he told reporters.
