Prime minister George Papandreou on Monday chaired a broad government meeting on developments in the major issues concerning the EU, and afterwards went straight into a second government meeting, with a different composition, that is discussing govern-ment planning, including the opening of the so-called closed-shop professions.

In the first meeting, which was also attended by the premier's advisor and European Central Bank former vice-president Loukas Papademos, discussions focused on the Greek government's initiative for the collection of at least one million signatures throughout Europe in favor of the issue of a euro-bond, while the various formulas for euro-bonds that have been put forward were also discussed.

"The issue does not concern only Greece, but all of Europe," the head of the signature collection campaign Vasso Papandreou told reporters after the meeting.
