    [02] Greece, Bulgaria, Romania sign labour law, social security cooperation pact

    (ANA-MPA) -- Greece, Bulgaria and Romania signed a tripartite agreement in Sofia on Thursday laying the ground work for cooperation in the areas of labour law and social insurance.

    The agreement was signed on behalf of Greece by Alternate Labour and Social Insurance Minister Giorgos Koutroumanis and his counterparts from Bulgaria and Romania.

    Cooperation between the three countries will create the necessary conditions to jointly tackle the major problems of "opportunist entrepreneurs" and "undeclared labour", Koutroumanis stressed.

    During the two-day visit to the Bulgarian capital the Greek delegation will attend the International Conference on Undeclared Work. (ANA-MPA)
