  • [01] Greens' Ska Keller urges greater solidarity with Greece, talking to ANA

    BRUSSELS (ANA/ M. Spinthourakis) There must be greater EU solidarity with Greece, both with regard to the refugee crisis and in issues concerning the Greek economy, Greens MEP Ska Keller told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency (ANA) on Wednesday, ahead of her arrival in Athens.

    The German MEP noted that Greece's EU partners "despite the fact that they had undertaken certain commitments to provide assistance, receiving refugees but also sending experts, have yet to respond..."

    While acknowledging that there were still shortcomings in the way Greek authorities were handling the refugee crisis, Keller also pointed out that Greece was unable to cope with such a great problem without European help.

    On the economic front, she noted that this was the time for Greece's partners in the Eurozone to show their solidarity. She also pointed out that the objections on Germany's side were anything but helpful and that workers' rights must be respected. This should be a fundamental element in the talks between Greek authorities and the institutions, she said.

    Keller is due in the Greek capital on Thursday, accompanied by the European Parliament Greens group General Secretary Vula Tsetsi.

    [02] Eighty-nine percent of Greece's Facebook users are linked to at least one SME

    Eighty-nine percent of Facebook users in Greece are linked with the business page of at least one small or medium-sized business, according to statistics presented at the first "SMB – Boost Your Business" event organized by Facebook and the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry in Athens on Wednesday.

    "This is a process of marketing democratization for small businesses, providing them with the same tools to develop easily and effectively, regardless of size, location, the industry to which they belong or the level of their skills," the Chamber noted in a press release.

    "There are over 60 million small and medium-sized businesses that actively use Facebook's pages because they're free, are easy to use and function well on mobile phones. Generally, business owners are discovering Facebook for their business because they already know how to use it for personal reasons; the creation of a page is just as easy as setting up a profile. Furthermore, all customers are already in Facebook," Facebook SMB Director Stefanos Loukakos said in the event's main speech.

    According to European Union data, the use of digital tools by Greek small and medium-sized businesses remains below the European average. Despite the social media dynamic in the country, which is in line with the European average (18 percent for both Greece and the EU), online sales of services and products lag behind (6.1 percent in Greece and an average of 16 percent in the EU).

    [03] Twenty-one objects from Antikythera shipwreck to be exhibited in December

    Twenty-one objects recovered in the recent underwater excavations on the Antikythera shipwreck will be exhibited for the first time as a unified set at the Aiketarini Laskaridis Foundation in Piraeus in December.

    The exhibition will he held on the occasion of the presentation of the results of the 2016 research, which will be held at the Foundation on December 2, and the 40-year anniversary of the Ephorate of Underwater Antiquities (EUA).

    "It will be much larger than the 2014 exhibition when we had only exhibited in the downstairs hall a spear, a lagynos (type of vessel used by the crew) and a piece of wood from the ship," the head of EUA, Dr. Angeliki Simosi, told Athens-Macedonian News Agency, adding that this year's exhibition will be located at the first floor and last a month.
