'Fast track' licensing for Elliniko investments

The investments that will allow development of the old Athens airport at Elliniko - which the government has promised to turn into one of Europe's largest metropolitan parks - are to be included in the "fast track" licensing process, according to a decision made on Friday by the Ministerial Committee for Strategic Investments.

Announcing the news, Minister of State Haris Pamboukis said that a "bold and visionary plan was now entering the stage of implementation" and highlighted the benefits of the investments. Among these he listed a "social dividend" for all residents of Attica and new jobs.

Pamboukis said the decision would allow him to visit Qatar next week with an overall proposal "that will interest every potentially serious investor".
