Greek chambers present national plan for business parks

The Union of Hellenic Chambers on Tuesday sent to government ministers a survey on a “National Action Plan for the Development of Business Parks 2018-2040”.

The survey was drafted by ReDePlan SA Consultants and lists the number, size and category of business parks needed to be developed in Greece, based on planning and financial viability criteria.

“The National Plan is a natural continuation of a similar survey conducted in 2012, but was not adopted by previous governments,” the Union said in an announcement. The survey has chosen 88 regions around Greece, of which 55 are informal concentrations for the development of Restructuring Business Parks with another 33 Business Parks being recommended. The plan is budgeted at 730 million euros (state and private participation) and will be implemented by 2040. The plan needs state funding worth 12 million euros annually.

The survey was sent by Constantinos Mihalos, president of the Union of Hellenic Chambers and of the Athens Chamber of Commerce and Industry to Development & Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis, Environment & Energy Minister Costis Hatzidakis, Infrastructure & Transport Minister Constantinos Karamanlis and deputy ministers A. Skertsos, N. Papathanasis, D. Economou and G. Kefalogiannis.
