  • [01] Greek PMI down in October

    Greek manufacturing sector fell deeper into recession in October as both production and new orders fell in the month, Markit said on Tuesday.

    The country's seasonally adjusted Purchasing Managers' Index PMI fell to 48.6 points in October from 49.2 in September, to a new five-month low, Markit said in a monthly report. The October figure underlined a slightly faster shrinking of the manufacturing sector, with production levels by Greek manufacturers falling for the second successive month. Weak demand was one of the reasons for the decline in production. New orders volume fell further in October, at a faster rate compared with September, while new incoming orders -domestic and abroad- remained low. New export orders fell at the fastest rate since June, although Greek manufacturers continued raising their workforce for the fifth successive month. Pending works deteriorated significantly in October, while average cost burden rose significantly, remaining on an upward trend for the seventh successive month affected by higher steel and dairy product prices. Meanwhile, Greek manufacturers continued lowering the outflow prices in October, for the fourth successive month. Delivery times slowed in the month

    [02] Rum Festival in Athens on 6 and 7 November

    Athens will be the capital of rum on November 6-7. A large festival, the first rum festival for the rum, will be held at the Zappeion Mansion organised by the bar Baba au Rum (World's 50 Best Bars 2013 and 2016) and the company Conf Expo Ltd. Founder of the festival is Thanos Pournarous, bartender and owner of Baba au Rum and founder of the magazine Fine Drinking.

    A large number of foreign bartenders and rum industries will participate in the festival.

    "Bars in Athens have made significant progress," said Pournarous and underlined: "Only a few cities worldwide can claim that they have a higher position than Athens and these are London, New York and probably Sidney. There are many Greek bars and bartenders that are internationally acclaimed. For us is very important to prove that Athens is a pioneer and we want to make Athens Rum Festival one of the best worldwide. It is very important that people from the specific industry as well as people that like fine drinking visit Athens."

    [03] Sailing boat with migrants missing; 45 migrants rescued

    A rescue operation is in progess in the sea region of Neapolis (southern Peloponnese) to locate a sailing boat with an unknown number of migrants on board.

    The sailing boat called 112 and asked for help late Monday. The rescue operation was launched with delay (early Tuesday) due to the adverse weather conditions prevailing in the area that did not allow coast guard vessels to sail.

    Meanwhile,45 migrants and refugees that were located late Monday in the area of Xiropotamos on Antikythera will be transferred to the port of Neapolis with the ferry Porfyroussa. The foreign nationals arrived on Antikythera with an unidentified vessel.
