Mr Papaligouras, within the framework of contacts aimed at Greece’s economic reconstruction and increasing the rate of exploiting its productive resources under the most favourable conditions possible (…), met in private today with Germany National Economy Minister Mr Erhardt and with Mr Edgar Faure.
