  • [01] The 2 bln euro revenues target from privatisations by end of the year is feasible, HRADF head says

    The target of 2 billion euro revenues from privatisations by the end of the year is feasible, the head of the Greek asset development fund (HRADF) Stergios Pitsiorlas said in a conference of the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry (ACCI).

    As he said, HRADF will be the main pillar of the new superfund. Referring to the privatisations plans, he estimated that the target of 6 billion euros by the end of 2018 will be achieved.

    The next targets of the fund are the privatisation of the Natural Gas Supply Company (DEPA), Hellenic Petroleum (ELPE), Public Power Corporation (PPC), international airport Eleftherios Venizelos, tourist ports and marinas as well as public properties.

    [02] The government is discussing road map on loosening capital controls, Economy Min Stathakis says

    The government is discussing a road map on loosening capital controls, Economy Minister George Stathakis said in an interview with Star TV late on Monday.

    Stathakis underlined that the participation of the Greek banks in ECB quantitative easing programme, the new development fund and the new NSRF programme will contribute to boosting growth rates adding that bureaucratic procedures will be further simplified and the institutions framework for public contracts will be restructured.

    The Economy Minister stressed that Greece is based on human resources with high skills and these investments are focused on small and medium entrepreneurship as well as innovative entrepreneurship.

    Moreover, he said that the government decided to proceed with significant tax and pension reforms in order to avoid salary and pension cuts.

    [03] Loans on main residencies valued up to 140,000 euros to be protected from funds, says minister

    All mortgage loans on main residencies with a fair market value up to 140,000 euros will be protected from being sold to funds, in a series of regulations which will be brought to parliament this week, in the omnibus bill on the last prior actions required by Greece's lenders, according to Economy Minister Giorgos Stathakis on Monday.

    Responding to a question by an opposition MP in parliament, Stathakis said that while the institutions demanded the sale of all loan categories to funds, the government managed to suspend until the start of 2018 the sale of "green" and "red" loans connected with the primary residence.

    He also said that this does not only include mortgage loans, but also all consumer loans of small and medium-sized businesses, or consumer loans connected to the primary residence.

    [04] Turkish aircrafts entered 42 times in Athens FIR

    Four Turkish aircrafts F-16, three naval cooperation aircrafts and six helicopters entered into Athens FIR on Monday without submitting flight plans. 18 violations of Athens FIR air traffic regulations were recorded that developed into 42 violations of the Greek airspace in several parts of the Aegean.

    In all cases the Turkish aircrafts were recognised and intercepted by Greek fighters. The Turkish planes were not loaded.

    The Turkish flight activity is part of the aeronautical exercise BEYAZ FIRTINA that is held in the international waters of the Aegean Sea.

    [05] Only four refugees arrived on the Greek islands in the last 24h

    Only four migrants and refugees arrived in the last 24 hours at the northern Aegean islands.

    According to police, four persons reached the coasts of Chios while no arrival was recorded on Lesvos and Samos.
