According to the lawyer, the forum discussed a programme for privatisation of Greek state property, in which Russian firms may participate. “We are very interested in Russians purchasing important infrastructure projects in Greece, since this will contribute to our country’s economic development,” Likurezos said.
According to the lawyer, the authorities will implement a plan on selling the new Athens international airport in the area of Spata near Athens where 55 percent of stocks are owned by the Greek state, 40 percent by the German company Hochtief and five percent – by the group of compnies of Greek tycoon Copelouzos.
“There is another major and interesting project – a sale of a large area of the old Athens international airport in the Athens suburb Elliniko,” the lawyer added. Elliniko assets were handed over to the Fund for using state property, which now announced a tender on hiring real estate experts.
