  • [01] Greece sends frigate and submarine to Eastern Mediterranean, FM Venizelos says

    ANA/MPA---A frigate and a submarine of the Hellenic Navy will sail in the Eastern Mediterranean, Government Vice-President and Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos said on Wednesday.

    Venizelos, speaking after meeting with Cypriot President Nicos Anastasiades, said this will take place as part of Greece's international obligations.

    The frigate, he added, is sent to the area as part of UNIFIL and the submarine under the NATO operation.

    Venizelos also referred to the agreement signed for search and rescue, through which the FIR and sea areas of Cyprus and Greece are united.

    [02] Greece needs new growth programme, parliament report says‏

    ANA/MPA---"Fiscal adjustment and reforms are implemented in a constantly changing international and European environment, like a quicksand," the Greek Parliament's State Budget Office said in a report. The quarterly report, covering the July-September period, released on Wednesday, noted that evidence of an unstable condition was the fact that a national programme for the era after the memorandum (ending in 2014) has not yet been drafted. The report noted that the most urgent issue was growth focusing on innovation and productivity and restructuring production. "Each growth plan needs a clear distribution plan and all redistribution measures should serve this purpose. Redistribution for growth needed a deep tax reform and a social policy on solid foundations," the Parliament's report said, adding that any government should seek the right balance between the operations of the state and the market taking in mind international and European experience, an evolving core of consensus in Europe and the particularities of the Greek economy which is trapped in vicious cycles. The report underlined that the end of the memorandum and the country's exit to capital markets for borrowing did not mean that the Greek economy was not burdened by serious structural problems nor that there was no big social problem in the country. "All these must be resolved with the implementation of a convincing growth program, which has yet to be announced," it said.

    [03] Vasilitsa and Pisoderi ski resorts inaugurate the winter season

    ANA/MPA---The ski season opened for the fans of the winter sports on the slopes of Pisoderi (Florina) and Vasilitsa (Grevena), northwestern Greece after the snow that fell over the last days in the area.

    The snow level in Vasilitsa has reached 30cm and all ski lifts are open for visitors. Two ski lifts of total length 1,836m are open in Pisoderi and the snow has reached 40cm.

    According to the weather forecast, snowfall is expected for Tuesday as well as for the coming weekend. If the weather conditions continue to be the same, the rest of the country's ski resorts will open successively until end of November.
