"Substantial progress on Greek motorways" says Commissioner Hahn after his meeting with Michalis Chrysochoidis, Greek Minister for Infrastructure, Transport and Networks

(11 September 2013)

"I have met with Minister Chrysochoidis who visited me in order to discuss the state of play on the motorway concessions which are very important for growth, jobs and road safety in Greece.

I note with satisfaction that there is substantial progress and that the Greek authorities are working well in order to finalise rapidly the agreements.

To ensure the financing of the reset, the money is there but funds need to be reallocated by the Greek authorities in the next few weeks, and earmarked for the projects, including by transfer of funds between operational programmes. I would be ready to proceed with the adoption of the major projects decisions, provided that the necessary funds are secured through the reprogramming".
