  • [01] Immigration cooperation memorandum signed

    A Memorandum of Cooperation on the creation of a supportive structure for the International Immigration and Development Forum was signed at the Interior ministry on Monday between the Forum's Presidency and the International Immigration Organisation.

    The Memorandum was signed by the Filippino Deputy Foreign Minister for Immigration Labour issues, Esteban Konejos, and the International Immigration Organisation's General Director William Swing.

    A formal ceremony will be taking place on Tuesday for the delivery of the 3rd International Immigration and Development Forum's Presidency from the Philippines to Greece, in the auditorium of the General Communications Secretariat-General Information Secretariat in the Athens district of Kallithea.

    [02] Bank of Greece governor on structural reforms

    The Economic and Industrial Research Foundation (IOBE) organised an event on Monday during which two new IOBE activities were inaugurated.

    The first concerns the enactment of the "IOBE Excellence" award that will be given to people providing considerable services to the Greek economy with their overall activity.

    The second concerns the establishment of a new annual event at which a distinguished personality from Greece or abroad will be appealing to an audience on current or structural problems of the Greek and the international economy.

    Addressing Monday's firsty session, Bank of Greece Governor George Provopoulos stressed the need for an extensive framework of structural reforms, mainly in the wider public sector, pointing out that for as long as the structural element of our monetary issues is tottering "the confidence of investors and of markets in the prospects of our economy will be restored with difficulty."

    Provopoulos also underlined that the Greek banks are remaining healthy and strong basically and their fundamental indexes are satisfactory.
