Greece’s Deputy Foreign Minister Evripidis Stylianidis began a two-day official visit to Israel on Wednesday, accompanied by Greek entrepreneurs, within the framework of the first joint inter-ministerial committee which is visiting the region.
It is the first time that such a large Greek business delegation visits Israel. Taking part are more than 30 entrepreneurs and directors of organizations who are holding bilateral contacts, while at the same time, they are taking part in a business conference which is jointly organized at a central hotel in Tel Aviv.
Visiting Jerusalem, Stylianidis met with Trade and Labor Minister Eli Yishai with whom he signed a bilateral agreement for the improvement of cooperation in the sector of trade. This agreement will constitute the framework for the implementation of all the previous agreements, which due to technical reasons, remained inactive, while it is expected that the agreement will facilitate the activity of more entrepreneurs in the two countries, creating a basis which will restrict bureaucratic obstacles which exist in the bilateral trade relations.
