10:00:28 Soundbite by Johannes Hahn (in ENGLISH): The focus of the European Union, the European Commission and the use of the European Structural Funds will be the support, the promotion of the economy meaning in particular the SME.

10:01:27 Soundbite by Johannes Hahn (in ENGLISH): In Ioannina, we could see and we got the proof that there is an excellent medical university well known far abroad to other parts of Europe. It is evident that this should be used for business cases as an outcome of research activities but also to stimulate wellness tourism, supported of course by medical knowledge. If you look into the landscape, it offers a lot of opportunities where we could have this intelligent, smart combination of agro food processing, SME's, tourism and wellness combined to what we will call wellness tourism related to agro areas which is, I think, is an opportunity unique for this part of Europe. 00:01:00
