Tsipras to visit TIF over the weekend

Opposition leader and SYRIZA chief Alexis Tsipras is expected to visit the 79th edition of the Thessaloniki International Fair (TIF) in the northern port city over the weekend.

The opposition head’s agenda includes meetings with TIF-Helexpo management officials and unionists as well as visits to the fair’s pavilions.

Tsipras is scheduled to speak at a rally on Saturday evening and give a press conference at the city’s Vellidis conference center at 1 p.m. on Sunday.

Traditionally opposition leaders visit the fair on the event’s second week, following the prime minister’s visit the week before.
