“Recording the public property in order to be better utilized is the government’s priority in the first half of 2011,” Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou stressed in Parliament on Friday in response to a relevant question posed by the main opposition New Democracy (ND) party.

“Recording the public property in order to be better utilized is the government’s priority in the first half of 2011,” Finance Minister George Papaconstantinou stressed in Parliament on Friday in response to a relevant question posed by the main opposition New Democracy (ND) party.

The digitizing of the public property register is currently underway by the Hellenic Public Real Estate Corp. (KED) in cooperation with the National Cadastre, the finance minister stressed, adding that the utilization of the former Athens airport at Helliniko is also a priority.  

“As soon as the public property is registered its appraisal will get underway,” the minister said, adding that a discussion on its utilization is useful when it is conducted based on specific facts. He stated, however, that “this process will not lead to a magic solution that will erase public debt and solve the problems of the Greek state”.

Papaconstantinou also clarified that the public revenues coming from the development of its real estate are being recorded in KED’s accounts and operation plan.
