  • [01] Traditional Kifissia flower show back for 59th year in a row

    ANA-MPA -- The annual flower show of Kifissia, a tradition that has attracted garden enthusiasts for nearly sixty years to the northern suburb's main square, opened in the presence of Agriculture Minister Athanasios Tsaftaris and other officials this past week. It will run to Sunday, May 26.

    "It is a fact that the sector of floriculture is dynamic and Greek flower producers are able and active," Kifissia Mayor Nikos Chiotakis said, adding that the Agriculture Ministry could help them improve exports, thus contribute to the trade balance and the economy overall.

    Tsaftaris responded that "exports of flowers are increasing sharply recently" and said the government was building a large flower auction house in greater Thessaloniki, in the north, that would support exports. Outlook for the sector was very positive, he added.

    According to a city of Kifissia press release, over 2,000 flowers cultivated in Greece will be on sale at the 59th Kifissia flower show. It will be open daily from 10:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m., and entrance is 1.5 euros except for children under 12 and lower-income groups.
