  • [01] PM receives merchants' confederation

    Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Friday received the board of the national confederation of commerce (ESEE) at his Maximos mansion office for talks on issues mostly concerning measures to boost domestic markets.

    After the meeting, ESEE president Dimitris Armenakis said the board asked the prime minister to accelerate procedures aimed at boosting liquidity by banks, adding that businesses are "suffocating" from a lack of cash.

    Additionally, unfair competition and better police protection of stores during demonstrations were also discussed.

    Armenakis said that the prime minister noted that no additional taxes will be levied on businesses, while agreeing that measures for "consecutive" social security pensions are socially just -- while a relevant amendment will soon be tabled in Parliament.

    [02] India the honored country at this year's TIF

    People visiting the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) next month will be greeted with a giant sculpture of an elephant approximately the size of a three-storey building and tusks 4.5 metres long.

    Two internal staircases are located within the gargantuan sculpture, composed of eight pieces. The artwork will be put in place on Sept. 4 and was selected on the occasion of India being the honored country at this year's TIF. Another five elephant sculptures have been placed in central squares of Athens, Piraeus, Patras, Larissa and Thessaloniki.
