  • [01] New opening hours for archaeological sites and museums

    ANA/MPA--Opening hours for archaeological sites and public museums around Greece will be extended from April until the end of October to accommodate tourists, the government announced on Tuesday. Archaeological sites will be open from 8am to 7 pm and museums from 8am to 8pm. On the first Sunday of next month (April 5), archaeological sites, museums and monuments will remain open with only one shift, due to a rearrangement of personnel.

    [02] Alt. Shipping Minister Dritsas: Time is not mature for review of Dublin Regulation

    Alternate Shipping Minister Theodoros Dritsas speaks of an irresponsible exploitation of the refugee and migration problem in an interview with ANA-MPA on Wednesday.

    Dritsas added that the problem does not accrue from the "government's allegedly policy of open frontiers". He also noted that according to the ministry's data the migration flows in the Aegean increased by 285 percent in 2014 in comparison with 2013 and underlined that it is not a national but a European problem and it should be examined on European level.

    Asked on Dublin Regulation, he said that he believes that the time is not mature for its immediate review. What is mature is the need for additional measures and new supplementary policies for the common confrontation of the problem.

    The full audio interview is available for subscribers at the ANA-MPA website.

    [03] Agreement on new natural gas pipeline to be signed very soon

    ANA/MPA---The initial agreement for the construction of the new natural gas pipeline which will start from the Greek-Turkish borders and will reach central Europe via Greece – a project with knock-on effects for the Greek economy – is expected to be signed within the next few days.

    According to Productive Reconstruction, Environment and Energy Minister Panagiotis Lafazanis (who on Wednesday and Thursday is visiting Riga, Latvia to participate in the informal meeting of EU Energy ministers), the agreement could be signed as early as next week.

    The construction of the Greek section of the pipeline between the Greek-Turkish borders and the borders with FYROM, entails a 2 billion euro investment which will create 2,000 jobs.
