    "Exit from Financial Crisis"

    PASOK leader, George Papandreou presented a 7-point plan to exit the country from the financial crisis and deal with the international credit crisis during the meeting of the partys Political Council. Mr. Papandreou blamed the government for inability to deal with the crisis and its impacts. He also said that the crisis is neo-conservative but the solutions progressive underlining that his partys target is to prevent low- income groups to bear the burden. PASOK president rendered the ND party perceptions, which as he said, undermine the state, democracy and institutions, underlining that cynic dedication to profiteering and speculation with a parallel concept of state clientelism operation system indicate that the ND utilizes power and state assets for mercenary motives.

    US Ford Motor Company Inc. said Monday that it would curb engine production at its German plant in Cologne for five weeks and put 820 employees there on part-time schedules because of slow demand in the US. The measures at the Cologne plant are to take effect November, 3 said a Ford spokesman. The Cologne plant employs a total of 17,300 people, but the company said production there of the Fiesta and Fusion models would not be affected. Several other European auto companies recently have announced production cutbacks. Earlier this month BMW AG, Daimler AG, Opel AG all said they were cutting production in Germany.
