    Construction work at the tunnels of Thessaloniki's unfinished metro resumed on Monday after four years of inaction due to legal and financial problems, the company and the Infrastructure ministry announced.

The agreement provides for the exchange of news, videos, graphs and information materials on bilateral and international issues.

    Kazinform was founded 95 years ago and broadcasts news in Kazakh, Russian, English and Arabic. It is also planning to broadcast news in Chinese and Spanish. It employs more than 100 reporters and correspondents in Russia, China, the United Arab Emirates, Belgium, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan and Kyrgyzstan.

    Kazinform is a member of the International Union of News Agencies 'Oana' (Organization of News Agencies in Asia and the Pacific) in which ANA-MPA is interested to participate as an observer, given that hundreds of thousands of Greek migrants and expatriates live in Australia and New Zealand.
