In their previous meeting in Nicosia, Mr Kyriakos Mitsotakis and Nikos Anastasiadis had announced that the Greek government would donate an aircraft to the Republic of Cyprus for the transport of members of the Cypriot government.

This donation is made by Greece as compensation for the offer of Cyprus to the fire victims of Eastern Attica.

That day came today and so at 12 noon the two leaders will participate in delivery-receipt ceremony, at the Elefsina Air Base, of the Embraer EMB-135 government aircraft.

The aircraft, type Embraer, is the first government aircraft received by Greece and belongs to the fleet of the Air Force. It has a carrying capacity of 32 people, a crew of 4 (pilot, co-pilot, engineer, flight attendant) and can fly at a maximum speed of Mach 0.78 up to an altitude of 37,000 feet.

It will be preceded by a four-four by the two men at 11 at Megaros Maximos.

The Elefsina Shipyards

Immediately after, the Prime Minister will visit the Elefsina Shipyards. This visit is considered highly symbolic as it was voted on just last Wednesday night the bill for the rehabilitation of the Elefsina Shipyards.

As government sources for Greece reminded, the revival of the shipbuilding industry is a crucial bet for our country to turn the page from the gloom that prevailed in the previous decades in the industry.

The plan for the consolidation of Shipyards of Elefsina follows exactly the steps of the similar plan that was drawn up and has already been completed for the consolidation of the Neorio Syros Shipyards, where today it has already paid all the claims to the workers and creditors, has increased the jobs from 150 to 600 and has given millions taxes to the Greek government.

The shipyards will proceed with their immediate and complete re-operation with a great benefit for the Greek economy, with many thousands of new jobs and prospects for large shipbuilding and repair production in Attica.

In numbers

The restart of the Shipyards’ activity will bring to the Greek State additional revenues from direct and indirect taxes totaling 1.1 billion euros over the next 25 years, creating 1,400 new jobs by the end of the third year of operation, with the total number of employees is estimated to rise to more than 2,000. In total, over the next 25 years, this employment is estimated to bring benefits of more than 800 million euros to the employees. Over the next 25 years, funds of 1.6 to 1.8 billion euros will be channeled to domestic suppliers and the wider Greek industry, redefining Greece’s production dynamics in important sectors such as defense and shipbuilding.
