  • [01] Negotiations with institutions to resume on Monday, says gov't spokeswoman Gerovassili

    Greek government's negotiations with the institutions will resume after the end of IMF's Spring Meeting, stated government spokeswoman Olga Gerovassili during her briefing to the press.

    She noted that the government fully complies with the agreement adding that the other side should do the same.

    Gerovassili referred to scenarios of deliberate delays in the program review, which IMF chief Christine Lagarde called nonsense and clarified that she is in favour of the rapid completion of the review, something that as Gerovassili claimed, has not yet been verified. Negotiations will resume on Monday, she reassured.

    [02] EU Commissioner Avramopoulos asks for improvement of revised Dublin mechanism

    PARIS (ANA-MPA/O.Tsipira) - It is time that the chaotic, illegal and dangerous migration flows are replaced with safe transit corridors, EU Commissioner for Migration, Home Affairs and Citizenship Dimitris Avramopoulos on Tuesday said at the European Parliament plenary in Strasbourg.

    Avramopoulos acknowledged the inefficiency of the revised Dublin mechanism and urged EU member states to improve it. He also admitted that the current relocation system "does not work" adding that the current system of asylum is "not fair and not viable."

    He also underlined that "the Commission will submit additional proposals with the view to achieving greater convergence with the EU system of asylum."

    [03] Cruise for new enterpreneurs and students

    Students and new enterpreneurs will have the opportunity to take part in a 'marathon' of creativity and launch their startup at sea.

    For four consecutive days they will be able to develop their business ideas while sailing in the Aegean Sea under the CruiseInn, a cruise trip for young enterpreneurship organised by the "ThinkBiz", the first Economic University of Athens student enterpreneurship association and the Celestyal Cruise.

    "Through this entertaining experience that will offer the trip to the Aegean and the Greek islands we aim to give the tools, the people, the training and the money prizes that will help the participants to turn a business idea into a sustainable start up," said the head of ThinkBiz Lenia Miltiadous to ANA-MPA.

    The cruiseship Celestyal Olympia, from May 16 to May 20 and October 17 to October 21, will become a ship of creativity. The ship will sail from Piraeus port for Mykonos, Kusadasi, Patmos, Rhodes, Heraklio and Santorini. Each trip will host 30 participants and will have a different theme.

    During the first cruise, participants will work on the development of ideas on the sectors of tourism and culture while the second cruise will focus on the sectors of food, beverages and gastronomy. "We believe that the creation of new enterprises with innovative and technological characteristics may become a financial crisis exit model for students, graduates and new enterpreneurs of Greece," said Miltiadous.

    The participants will be selected through an evaluation process. Those interested can send their applications to getcruiseinn.com.

    Cruiseinn 2016 is held under the auspices of the Economy Ministry, the Hellenic Professionals Informatics Society and Blue Growth.
