  • [01] Deputy FM Skandalakis receives South Korean candidate for post of OECD secretary general

    Deputy Foreign Minister Panayiotis Skandalakis on Thursday received South Korea's candidate for the post of Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) secretary general professor Han Seung-soo, who briefed him on his candidacy.

    The deputy foreign minister in turn informed Seung-soo that Greece will reach its decision on the candidacies in the near future and wished him all the best in his effort.

    There are six candidates for the post of OECD secretary general, who will present themselves in Paris in October where they will be outlining their positions on the OECD and the reasons why they wish to seek the post.

    [02] HCO acquires offices in Vienna

    The Hellenic Culture Organisation (HCO) has just acquired new offices in the centre of the Austrian capital following a grant made by Sylvia Goldangl.

    Goldangl personally made the announcement on Thursday to HCO President Stamatis Mavros who is in Vienna on occasion of the "Hellenic Autumn in Vienna".

    Goldangl is making available to the organisation 600 square metres of office space. The organisation will be responsible for the offices' operational costs.

    HCO's Board of Directors accepted Goldangl's donation.

    [03] Statues unearthed on Crete

    The Italian Archaeological School on Thursday discovered two well-preserved statues during its excavations on the island of Crete.

    The two statues, probably dating back to the Roman period, are sculpted in white marble and are of Goddess Hera and Goddess Athena.

    According to archaeologist Anna Micheli, who is working with the Italian team, one of the statues might be sent to the Museum of Iraklio.
