  • [01] Folias inaugurates Thessaloniki Industrial Park

    Development minister Christos Folias on Saturday inaugurated the Thessaloniki Industrial Park (BIPATHE), which he said would, in the coming years, play an important developmental role for Thessaloniki and Northern Greece in general.

    Inaugurating the Terna Group's 32 million euros investment -- co-financed the Greek state and the Third Community Support Framework - in Aghios Athanasios, in the western part of Thessaloniki, Folias said that the operation of the Industrial Park substantially facilitated the restructure and strengthening of industrial production in the region, conserved resources due to the achievement of scale economies, and ensured more efficient protection of the environment, noting that the modernisation and multiplication of industrial and entrepreneurial zones in Greece was the spearhead of the government's industrial policy.

    In that respect, Folias said that a bill would soon be tabled in parliament on the organizational and operational arrangement of existing Industrial Zones and introduction of a new flexible framework for the establishment of Business Parks, with a simultaneous simplification of industrial licences.

    The Park was founded under Law 2545/97, and is one of the first private Industrial Parks in Greece, extending over an area of 1,000 stremma and capable of housing up to 22 industries and businesses in 470 stremma of buildable land.
