Plotting the way ahead for the South Aegean

Commissioner for Regional Policy Johannes Hahn met Yiannis Mahairidis, the Governor of the South Aegean region today to discuss the implementation of regional policy projects there. Mr Mahairidis also presented a study on specific challenges and needs of this region to Commissioner Hahn. The South Aegean is  characterized by its remoteness and the collection of large and small islands.

Commissioner Hahn stressed that the region should increase its efforts in implementing the infrastructure and the priority projects which have to be completed by the end of this programming period.
