  • [01] Inauguration of 9th International Franchise Exhibition

    Deputy Development Minister Yiannis Papathanasiou and the French Ambassador to Greece Bruno Delaye inaugurated the 9th International Franchise KEM 2007 Exhibition at the Athens Convention Centre on Friday. France is the theme country at this year's exhibition. Papathanasiou stressed that the government and the development ministry support the institution.

    Addressing the event, the deputy development minister said the government believes that franchising is the "reply" by commercial businesses, and especially small and medium-size ones, to the challenges of the future.

    The deputy development minister expressed his conviction that funds will be secured from the 4th Community Support Framework (CSF) to back businesses that develop through the franchising system.

    Moreover, he mentioned that the ministry's immediate priorities include the creation of an institutional framework for a better and more organised functioning of the system.

    The French ambassador, on his part, thanked the Federation for France being the theme country at this year's exhibition. He said in a brief address that the 15 French companies partipating in the exhibition will have the possibility of carrying out successful Greek-French transactions.

    The exhibition, due to last from February 23-26, is being organised under the auspices of the National Greek Trade Confederation, the Franchise Federation of Greece, the World Franchise Council (WFC) and the European Franchise Federation (EFF).
