 Heading In The Right Direction – Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaris said that Greece will survive its current difficulties, but admitted that a lot was still to be done.

“In the last few years we’ve had to correct many mistakes in a very short period. The work has been complicated by rumours that Greece plans to leave the euro. However we have completed two of the three prescribed measures. We are trying to rebuild competitiveness, we want to continue privatization and to attract new investors. So we are heading in the right direction and no one is talking about leaving the euro anymore,” Samaras explained.

Greece’s Highways Are Smoother Than Its Finances – Driving across Europe, the roads tell you a lot about the continent and its crisis. Cross the border to Greece from Bulgaria or Turkey — as I recently did on a 2,800 mile road-trip from Istanbul to London — and you move from narrow, potholed, lethal truck runs onto the wide and empty magic carpets of Greece’s freeways. The financial crisis is global, but it’s Greece that’s a mess, despite (or maybe because of) its wealth of infrastructure.

Strikes are blocking Greek ports | At present, the active strike actions of sailors have most negatively affected agriculture and trade between island and mainland Greece. The Federation requires the re-enforcement of collective labour agreements, keeping the cabotage and wage increases.
