  • [01] Papandreou visits Thessaloniki International Fair

    Main opposition PASOK party leader George Papandreou visited the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) on Friday afternoon and promised that his party would invest 5 percent of the GDP in education and 7 percent in education and research.

    "Greece has three main tools to proceed with a new growth model having competitiveness and prosperity: education, research and innovation and investments. Unfortunately, the government has downgraded all three of these tools. We promise to invest 5 percent of the GDP in education and 7 percent of the GDP in education and research to enable us to proceed with this new growth model," he said.

    Papandreou met with the directorates of the TIF and of HELEXPO which briefed him on the TIF's course.

    The PASOK leader also met with staff representatives of the TIF and of HELEXPO who did not conceal their disappointment over the fact that as of January 2009, Thessaloniki will be "losing the premises" since the operation of an exhibition centre will begin in the region of Eleftherios Venizelos airport in Athens.

    The employees also expressed concern over the possibility of a change in the exhibitions' ownership status.

    After being briefed by the TIF's agencies, Papandreou visited the exhibitors' pavilions and concluded his visit at the pavilion of the Athens News Agency-Macedonian Press Agency (ANA-MPA), where the director of the Macedonian Press Agency, Spyros Kouzinopoulos, showed him the possibilities of the ANA-MPA's Internet television and gave him the ANA's fine "Plin Athinon" album.

    Papandreou was accompanied on his visit and in his discussions by party officials Louka Katseli, Yiannis Mangriotis, Evi Christofilopoulou, Mihalis Chrysohoidis, Haris Kastanidis, D. Dolis and Eva Kaili.
