Greek Foreign Minister Dora Bakoyannis stressed during a press conference on Monday that her visit to China for the 35th anniversary since Greece and China established diplomatic relations would be an excellent opportunity to strengthen bilateral relations and cooperation on all levels.
Bakoyannis is scheduled to depart for Shanghai at the head of a business delegation, accompanied by Deputy Foreign Minister Evripidis Stylianidis and foreign ministry general secretary Theodoros Skylakakis.
The effort to promote bilateral relations will focus on shipping, tourism, cooperation in alternative energy sources and promoting Greek exports to China.
The 35 years of Greek-Chinese diplomatic relations will be celebrated in Beijing on May 11 with a concert in the 'Forbidden City' featuring popular Greek singer Alkistis Protopsalti, who was also present during the press conference on Monday.
