 Kostis Hatzidakis: āZero Tolerance to CartelsāNews
Two Greek experts are likely to join the group of monitors agreed to supervise the flow of natural gas in the Russian-Ukrainian border. The effort to settle the impasse has eased the worries of the Greek government, despite the fact that measures have been stepped up to meet the needs of households and industries. Greece's Public Power Corporation (PPC) assured Development Minister Kostis Hatzidakis that there was no risk of power cuts. Hatzidakis, on his part, made it plain that power rates will not be revised.
