    Greece's Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras was in the Turkish coastal city of Izmir on Tuesday for the fourth session of a High-Level Cooperation Council (HLCC) aiming to further improve bilateral relations between the two countries.

    The visit will begin with the HLCC, which got underway on Tuesday afternoon and will be followed by the signature of agreements and joint statements to the press at 16:30. Greek government sources said the agenda for the meeting will focus mainly on transport, trade and tourism, including a ferry link between Izmir and Thessaloniki and a rail link between Thessaloniki and Istanbul.

    In terms of Greek exports, Turkey's interest focuses mainly on construction materials, while in terms of Turkish investments to Greece, on tourism and real estate.

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras and Turkish counterpart Ahmet Davutoglu will also discuss the refugee crisis, with Greece stressing the need to implement and speed up migrant readmission procedures.

    The Council meeting will be followed by a Greek-Turkish Business Forum starting at 18:00, with the participation of 36 Greek businesses and other organisations mainly active in the tourism, real estate, food and drink, construction, logistics, transport and building materials sectors.

    At 19:00 on Tuesday, the Greek prime minister will make a speech at a ceremony where he will be granted an honorary doctorate from Izmir University.

    The visit will end with a dinner given by the Izmir Chamber of Commerce and the Union of Chambers and Commodity Exchanges of Turkey at 20:00.
