  • [01] Tsipras marks Pontic Greek Genocide by noting importance of recognising historic truths

    Recognising historic truth is necessary in ensuring we don't repeat crimes of the past, Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Thursday in a message to mark the Pontic Greek Genocide during World War I and its aftermath.

    "Today we remember the painful past of the Pontic Greeks who endured a violent uprooting and genocide," Tsipras said in a Twitter post.

    "Recognizing the historic truth is necessary in ensuring crimes and tragic mistakes of the past are not repeated. And to tackle more effectively intolerance, by building relationships of trust and dialog with our neighbours," he added.

    [02] FinMin Tsakalotos lists six state companies that will be transferred to privatisation fund

    Finance Minister Euclid Tsakalotos presented in parliament on Thursday a list of six public companies which will be transferred to the newly established Public Holding Company (EDIS) which will manage and utilize state holdings until they are sold through the country's new privatization fund.

    The companies are the Athens transport (OASA), road transport (OSY), the Urban Rail Transport (STASY), Greek railways (OSE), the Athens Olympic Sports Complex (OAKA) and the Hellenic Post (ELTA).

    Tsakalotos also said that the government is in talks with the institutions on a second list of companies that will be added in the privatization fund.

    [03] Greece is the big winner this year in bookings from Austria, says TUI Group

    VIENNA (ANA-MPA/D. Dimitrakoudis) - Greece has ousted Turkey from first place in the preferences of Austrian holidaymakers this year according to bookings made so far, a spokeswoman of international tourism company TUI Group said, during an event in Vienna on Thursday.

    "This year Greece is the big winner for tourism from Austria, even if the levels of bookings for holidays in some islands of the Eastern Aegean are not as high as previously," TUI Austria said during a presentation of the results of a large poll conducted in six European countries on the tourist preferences of their population.

    A spokesperson representing the travel agencies Gruber said in statements that one in four Austrians have chosen Greece for their summer holidays in 2016.
