  • [01] The role of Antetokounmpo in Greek tourism

    The first Greek participation in the NBA All Star Game has not only benefited the Greek basketball but the tourism sector too.

    Giannis Antetokounmpo was the focus of attention in the recent "celebration" of New Orleans, where the biggest stars of the NBA gathered and coincided with the "high season" of Americans' reservations to European destinations.

    Two days after the end of the All Star Game, the social media still write about the achievements of Antetokounmpo with the nickname the "Greek Freak."

    According to US travel agencies, all this fame of Antetokounmpo has attracted the interest of American tourists who choose Greece over other famour European destinations for their next holidays

    [02] We will not vote for new fiscal measures but we will say "yes" to structural reforms, ND's Staikouras says

    We will not vote for new fiscal measures but we will say "yes" to structural reforms, main opposition New Democracy (ND) coordinator of Economic Affairs Christos Staikouras on Wednesday said in an interview with the Athens-Macedonian News Agency's radio station Praktoreio 104.9 FM.

    Staikouras also said that the Eurogroup did not take any decisions as the government claims and accused it of not having made an official announcement. "We only agreed on the return of the technical staff. I wish the programme review is concluded otherwise the results will be tragic," he underlined.

    Moreover, he lashed out at the government because it agreed on the main positions of the IMF, that is to legislate measures for the period after 2019 on the tax free threshold and the social security system while it also accepted high surplus targets.

    Regarding New Democracy's demand for elections, he said that this has not only to do with the progress of the negotiations. "Economy is a critical sector, but we also want elections because of the government's policy in other sectors such as education, security and Democracy," he stressed.
