  • [01] PM Tsipras: FT's article on Greek GDP data is 'best response to doomsayers'

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras responded to an article published in the Financial Times on Friday, which commented favourably on Greek economic data and titled "Greece surprises with economic growth", saying it is "the best response to doomsayers".

    Greece posted a 0.3 percent GDP growth in the second quarter of the year, compared to the first quarter of this year, defying expectations for a negative rate. The Hellenic Statistical Authority (ELSTAT) also said the GDP contracted 0.7 percent compared with the same period of 2015. In terms of volume, the economy contracted by 0.1 percent in the second quarter, year-on-year.

    [02] All three fires on Corfu contained

    All three fires that broke out over the course of the afternoon in different parts of Corfu on Friday have been brought under control, the head of the local fire department told ANA-MPA.

    Efthimis Georgakopoulos said fire fighters and the two aircraft sent to assist managed to contain the flames after four hours, despite the strong winds hampering their efforts.

    "The wildfires that broke out in the areas of Linia in Chlomos, the area of Barbati, but also the area of Strongyli have been brought under control, while first estimations show about 30,000 square meters of farmland have been burned," he said.

    [03] PM Tsipras to attend commemoration events for WWII massacre in Kommeno

    Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras will visit the village of Kommeno in Arta, at the regional unit of Epirus, western Greece, on August 16, to participate in the official events commemorating the 317 inhabitants executed by Nazi forces in 1943.

    The event will start at 11:00 (local).
