Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis is scheduled to meet visiting Albanian Prime Minister Sali Berisha at 12:30 on Wednesday, following an earlier meeting at 10:30 with Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis.
The prime minister will then host a dinner in honor of his Albanian counterpart, government spokesman Theodoros Roussopoulos announced.
Roussopoulos noted that the meeting with Berisha will give further impetus to bilateral relations with Albania, which were currently at a very good level.
"Contacts on a government level are frequent, while the protection of the Greek minority and its progress is an issue of particular interest," he added.
The spokesman also pointed out that Greece had the largest share of foreign capital invested in Albania (27 percent of all foreign investments) and was the Balkan state's second most important trade partner.
