  • [01] Taxi owners suspend strike

    Taxi owners throughout Greece on Friday announced the suspension of their strike after nearly a month of mobilisations that included blockades of the country's ports and airports.

    The decision to end the strike was taken during a more than three-hour general assembly of the nationwide federation of taxi owners.

    Following the suspension of the strike, taxis are expected to reappear immediately on Greek streets.

    [02] PM reply letter to Commission chief

    ANA-MPA/Greek prime minister George Papandreou stressed that implementation of the July 21 eurozone summit decisions is imperative, and must be done so promptly and effectively, in a letter to European Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso, responding to Barroso's recent letter to the EU member states' leaders.

    Papandreou noted that, beyond the implementation of the summit decisions, a consistent effort will also be need for further institutional upgrading "so that we will always be ahead of the developments, rather than behind them", with respect with the EU's actions in relation to the moves by the market.

    The Greek premier further noted to Barroso that the decisions of the July 21 eurozone summit in Brussels must be advanced by the authoritative European institutional bodies, the member states and, chiefly, by the national parliaments.
