Visit of Johannes Hahn, Member of the EC, to Greece

Johannes Hahn, Member of the EC in charge of Regional Policy, travelled to Patras and Tripoli to push for the most efficient and effective use of the country's main source of public investment – EU Regional Funds. On this leg of his tour of the country's 13 regions he urged local business and regional representatives to use Regional Funds for growth and innovation and called for more targeted spending to create new jobs; in particular in research and development, support for Small and Medium-sized Enterprises and sustainable tourism. He also sought the elimination of illegal landfill sites, which deter potential investors and badly affect people’s quality of life, to be replaced by modern waste management plants. These can be co-financed through EU Regional Policy. During his stay, Johannes Hahn met with Apostolos Katsifaras, Governor of the West Greece region, as well as regional representatives, NGOs and business representatives in the Peloponnese region, to discuss how to best target EU investment to build on the regions' strengths and to create the maximum impact. In Patras, he visited a project managed by the Institute of Chemical Engineering and High Temperature Chemical Processes (ICE-HT). He then went to the Port of Patras. In Tripoli, Johannes Hahn visited the illegal landfill named Platoma. He also embarked on a visit to the SME Nikolakopoulou, which distributes aromatic herbs and vegetables.
