  • [01] Tegea Archaeological Museum in the running for European Museum of the Year Award

    Greece's culture ministry and the Arcadia Antiquities Ephorate on Friday announced that the Tegea Archaeological Museum has been nominated as a candidate for the European Museum of the Year Award (EMYA) in 2016.

    The museum was included in a list of candidates posted on the website of the European Museum Forum, which organises the competition, after a meeting of the judges' committee in Zagreb. The winning museum will be announced at a ceremony to be held from April 6-9 at Tolosa and San Sebastian in Spain.

    The Tegea Museum's dossier was put together in the spring of 2015 and submitted to the EMF with the support of the Stasinopoulos-Viohalco Public Benefit Foundation. The museum is situated in the traditional settlement of Alea in Tripoli, in the centre of the Peloponnese and was one of the first public museums of the independent Greek state, founded in 1907. Recently, it was been extensively refurbished, with improvements to both the building and the exhibition, using EU funds and reopened in 2014. It is the only Greek museum participating in this year's EMYA competition.

    Established in 1977 under the auspices of the Council of Europe, the EMYA is awarded annually with the aim of encouraging the best practices and innovative actions by museums in Europe

    [02] Greece and Turkey are both victims of the refugees crisis, says Turkish ambassador Kerim Uras to ANA-MPA

    "Greece and Turkey are both victims of the refugees crisis", said in an interview with ANA-MPA Turkish ambassador to Greece Kerim Uras and accepted that the re-admission of refugees from Greece to Turkey is not working, however, he referred to "practical problems" noting that "political will exists from both sides towards a more effective dealing with the problem'

    The Turkish ambassador expressed his optimism over the solution of the Cyprus issue which , as he said, would be a beacon of hope in a distressed region. Referring to Turkey-EU relations he said that regarding the refugees issue their relations should be under the spirit of burden and responsibility sharing and that the "visa liberalisation and the opening of chapters would be a positive move that will eventually lead to full membership".

    [03] Canadian investments are welcome to Greece, says State Minister Pappas to Canadian envoy Morrill

    State Minister Nikos Pappas met on Friday with the ambassador of Canada to Greece Keith Morrill at Maximos mansion.

    Pappas clarified that Greece welcomes the Canadian investments in Greece but always provided upon strict respect to the law.

    Moreover, they discussed the rapidly developing bilateral relations in the sectors of investment, trade, tourism and culture as well as the timely role of the Greek Diaspora that works as a bridge between the two countries. They also noted the importance that, both Greek and Canadian government, give to the adoption of development and not austerity policies against the economic crisis.

    The minister of State stressed that Canada's decision on the relocation of 25,000 Syrian refugees constitutes an example for the European countries that have shown reluctance to assume their share of responsibility on the refugees crisis.
