RODOS (Greece), September 29 (Itar-Tass) — The first Greek-Russian investment conference “New Horizons of Economic Relations of Greece and Russia in the sphere of investment policy, commerce and tourism” is opening on Rodos Island on Thursday.
The forum’s organizers told Itar-Tass that plenary meetings would discuss problems and prospects of Russian-Greek relations at contemporary stage. Other topics will include the creation of a new economic model for bilateral partnership, investments in Greece and other countries of southern Europe, the development of regulations for mutual interaction and cooperation in the sphere of energy, tourism, immovable property and banking business.
A briefing for Russian and Greek journalists will be held on Thursday afternoon.
The first plenary meeting will take place on Friday.
Simos Kedikoglu, the head of the Greece-Russia friendship group in the Greek parliament and the chairman of the Greece-Russia friendship society, said in an interview with Itar-Tass that the Rodos conference was a vital and necessary undertaking.
“It’s important for Greece to develop cooperation with Russia in the power sector, in the exploration of natural resources, industry, shipbuilding, the introduction of new technologies and tourism,” Kedikoglu said. He personally wished that a Russian technology for solar power stations operating on photo elements could appear in Greece because that sector is going to develop actively.
The Greek MP called for developing cooperation in shipbuilding.
“Our interaction in shipbuilding has been good but I know that Greek ship owners want more contracts with Russian companies. At the moment, Greek ship owners are a major force in shipping,” Kedikoglu added.
