Observatory for exports announced

Deputy Foreign Minister Spyros Kouvelis announced on Monday the creation of an Exports Observatory to monitor the country’s export activity on a permanent basis.

Speaking at the presentation of the ministry’s 2011 Financial Diplomacy Program, Kouvelis also announced the establishment of a special working group to include representatives of exporters’ associations.

This group will determine each year the target markets for Greek financial diplomacy, with proposals submitted every three to four months.
