A delegation of Chinese journalists that are currently on a visit to Greece was received by Deputy Interior Minister and government spokesman George Petalotis on Thursday. Also present during the meeting was Information and Communication General Secretary Giorgos Petroulakis.
Petalotis briefed the visiting Chinese journalists on the status and operation of the media in Greece and the actions and policy adopted by the Greek government in order to deal with Greece's debt crisis.
He said that the Greek government hoped to overcome the problems through the reforms now being adopted and stressed the need for closer cooperation between Greece and China in all areas.
The delegation were among the first passengers to arrive in Athens on a resumed 'Air China' flight service from Beijing to Athens via Munich, which Greek authorities hope will boost the numbers of Chinese tourists arriving in the country.
