  • [01] Dialogue on TTIP continues; there are improvements, Economy Min Stathakis says

    We are not close to an agreement, but the dialogue continues, Economy Minister George Stathakis said on the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP).

    The minister pointed out that Greece accepts that the reduction of duties might enhance trade, but the TransatlanticTrade and Investment Partnership is not only this, it is a very complicated issue and there are aspects of the agreement with which the Greek government has disagreed.

    [02] Civil servants' union federation ADEDY urges mass turnout for Saturday rally against pension reforms

    The civil servants' union federation ADEDY called for mass public participation in a protest rally against planned pension system reforms taking place in Omonia Square at noon on Saturday, in an announcement on Wednesday. The rally is being organised by ADEDY with other trade union and social organisations.

    "The government's recent proposals to the Quartet of creditors do not constitute, as it claims, a social insurance reform that will save social insurance but a new looting of pensions, with all pensioners but especially those that go into retirement after the law is passed as its victims," the announcement said.

    [03] Three ferries with refugees to dock at Piraeus port on Thursday

    "Blue Star 1" ferry carried 1,036 refugees from Mytilene and 135 refugees from Chios to the Piraeus port on Thursday.

    Another two ships with around 1,000 refugees on board are expected to arrive within the day.
