Acceleration and further promotion of bilateral cooperation between Greece and China, focusing on the exchange know-how in the shipping sector, were the main points of recent seminars organised at the initiative of the maritime affairs, islands & fisheries ministry.

The signing of a Greece-China cooperation memorandum last June led to the seminars, which were held with the participation of senior executives of leading Chinese shipping companies, and which featured lectures by academicians and senior shipping sector executives. A series of visits to the Piraeus Port Authority S.A., adjacent shipyards, the Merchant Marine Academy and shipping companies’ headquarters was also included in the itinerary.

Meanwhile, in a report from Beijing, the largest news agency in China and one of the largest in the world, Xinhua, on Saturday inaugurated a new on-line multimedia applications platform, featuring financial news items and economic data about the Far East economic powerhouse.

The new platform was heralded under the headline “Xinhua officially launches financial information exchange”, and launched via gigantic video screens in the Chinese capital.

Scenes from a recent visit by the Chinese prime minister to Greece and his talks with his Greek counterpart, as well as a 20-minute interview with Greece's ambassador to China, Amb. Theodoros Georgakelos, speaking on bilateral relations, investment possibilities and expansion of trade ties were shown.
