Greek President Karolos Papoulias on Monday received an All-China Federation of Trade Unions (ACFTU) delegation accompanied by World Federation of Trade Unions (WFTU) General Secretary Giorgos Mavrikos.

Papoulias referred to the contribution of the Chinese workers to the Far East country's impressive economic growth underlining, at the same time, the role of farmers.

Commenting on the cooperation between Greece and China at the port of Piraeus, he expressed satisfaction because “a dynamic part of China works in Piraeus and has major development plans”. He also pointed out that this is the “first time Chinese workers have had a presence in Greece”, adding that “cooperation between Greek and Chinese workers is on the right track and has very good future”.

ACFTU Vice-Chairperson and 1st Secretary of the ACFTU Secretariat Wang Yu Pu characterised Papoulias as “a friend of China”, while he referred to the excellent relations shared by his country and Greece -- reaffirmed recently by visits of both China’s president and premier to Greece.
