Agriculture could be the key for Greece's exit from the economic crisis and for this reason will be supported, Agricultural Development and Foods Minister Costas Skandalidis said while addressing a seminar in Pella on Saturday.

The minister pointed out that the government was setting up a new Agricultural Enterprise Fund that would initially have roughly 150 million euro at its disposal, adding that central Macedonia could have a privileged role in the new developmental model as a centre for research, innovation and for transporting agricultural products towards Europe.
