  • [01] Negotiations between government and institutions' representatives concluded

    The new round of negotiations between the government and the representatives of the institutions within the framework of the second programme review was concluded at 5.30 am on Tuesday.

    The representatives of the institutions will depart from Athens and the discussions will continue by teleconference, probably before the Euro Working Group on November 28.

    According to officials participating in the Greek negotiating team, there are three open issues - labour, energy, fiscal. On the labour issue, no progress has been recorded while the two sides seem to have reached greater convergence on the issues of fiscal figures and the extra judicial settlement of bad loans.

    However, progress has been achieved on the issue of the procedure of common collection of taxes and contributions, which will be later redefined based on a roadmap to be decided until March 2017 between the Labour Ministry and the General Secretariat of Public Revenue, as well as the implementation of the OECD toolkit.

    [02] Smart parking and smart lighting systems to be installed at Chalkida

    The first pilot smart parking and smart lighting systems will be installed in Chalkida in the next few days, the mayor Christos Pagonis said.

    "We have bought the equipment and we will be ready by January 20," Pagonis said stressing the importance of energy saving.

    "Right now there is a waste of energy," Pagonis said referring to the classic lighting systems. The new system provides four different light intensity grades depending on the weather thus saving energy.

    "According to our study, energy saving will gradually reach 50-60 percent," he underlined adding that the municipality pays annually 2.5-3.0 million euros to the Public Power Corporation.

    Regarding the smark parking system, he said that citizens spend 20-30 minutes on finding a parking lot. The new system will now inform them on the availability of parking.

    Moreover, he said, both systems will have a positive impact on the environment.
