The economist had been an advisor of current Greek Prime Minister George Papandreou, who had enlisted his help in Greece's efforts to overcome its current economic crisis.

Padoa-Schioppa, a former Italian finance minister that was considered to be one of the architects of the euro, died as a result of a heart attack the previous Saturday while attending a dinner in Rome.

Papaconstantinou was accompanied by the Greek ambassador to Rome Mihalis Kampanis and Vassilis Papadimitriou from the prime minister's office.
