  • [01] US Postal Service stamp collection dedicated to American philhellenes

    A new collection of postage stamps dedicated to American philhelleneswill be on sale at US post offices as of April 19, celebrated in Greece as the Day of Philhellenism and International Solidarity. The collection honors the Americans who fought and died in the struggle for Greek Independence.

    The stamp series "Association of American Philhellenes 1810-1840" features an image of the grave of George Jarvis, a portrait of Samuel Gridley Howe and the emblem of the Association of American Philhellenes, according to the Greek service of the Voice of America.

    The decision to issue the series was made following an initiative by association president Panagiotis Nikolopoulos.

    April 19 was proclaimed Philhellenism and International Solidarity Day by the Greek Parliament, commemorating the anniversary of the death of the famous poet and philhellene Lord Byron.

    [02] 'Last chance for economy'

    (ANA-MPA) -- Bank of Greece (BoG) Governor George Provopoulos on Monday called for greater determination by the government in promoting reforms, underlining that the Medium-term Fiscal Consolidation Programme - announced last week -- was the "last chance" for restarting the Greek economy.

    Presenting the central banks annual report, Provopoulos noted (ANA-MPA) that "promoting reforms was lacking behind the pact needed and often their implementation was delayed either because of civil administration bureaucracy or because authorities are hesitating in view of public reactions".
