  • [01] Chinese nat'l development official on official visit to Athens

    AMNA / Greece and China are examining enhancement of their bilateral cooperation in the sectors of shipping, shipbuilding and tourism, Greek development, competitiveness and shipping minister Mihalis Chryssohoidis said on Monday after a meeting with China's vice-minister of the National Development and Reform Commission, Zhang Xiaoqiang.

    Chryssohoidis said that the Chinese official expressed interest in Greece's denationalisations programme and reaffirmed that COSCO wants to expand its activities in Greece.

    The minister further said that efforts are being made to simplify the visa procedures "which is an obligation of ours", while he also noted that there was a leap in Greek exports to China on 2010, which rose by 55.9 percent, whereas Chinese exports to Greece declined by 5.42 percent, reducing Greece's trade balance deficit vis-a-vis china by 7.35 percent to 2.7 billion euros against the preceding year.

    Zhang, in turn, said that with the efforts of the two countries, the relations between the two people are very satisfactory and could improve further. "China will help the EU and Greece to overcome the economic crisis," he said, adding that more imports of Greek products will be made to China and that the government will encourage Chinese companies to invest in Greece.

    He further noted that Chinese investments are made with respect for the environment and the laws of the other country, creating new jobs. amna
