  • [01] Gov't to order striking transport staff back to work

    AMNA--Striking transportation workers will be ordered back to work by the government, Development Minister Costis Hatzidakis said after a conference with the premier at the Maximos Mansion on Thursday.

Striking workers have ignored court decisions, creating problems in transportation for citizens and the government cannot just stand witness to this, Hatzidakis added.

    [04] Greek exports expected to continue growing in 2013‏

    AMNA--Greek exports are expected to continue growing for the fourth consecutive year in 2013, rising by up to 10 pct, Alkiviadis Kalampokis, president and chief executive of the Hellenic Foreign Trade Board said on Wednesday.

    Speaking to reporters in Thessaloniki, Kalampokis said that Greek exports grew by 10 pct in 2012 to 24.5 billion euros, exceeding initial forecasts and breaking 2011's record of 20 billion euros.amna

    Kalampokis noted that the export/import rate fell to 1.8 in 2012, sharply down compared with previous years and stressed that if this trend was combined with a stronger shift towards Greek products, then the benefit for the country's trade balance would be huge. He said that the Foreign Trade Board planned more than 60 actions for this year, of which 52 were participations in international trade fairs and 13 business delegations, despite the fact that funding has been drastically cut.
