Investment Minister on potential Volkswagen plant in Greece

On a question of whether German automaker giant Volkswagen will open a manufacturing plant in Greece, Development and Investments Minister Adonis Georgiadis said that “the Greek government, the prime minister, I as Development and Investments Minister and the Deputy Minister for Economic Diplomacy and Extroversion Kostas Fragogiannis, we have all shown active interest in the matter,” speaking on national TV broadcaster ERT1 on Tuesday morning.

“But in order to be able to make specific announcements, I need to have a specific result in hand,” Georgiadis continued and concluded by saying that “I can, however, tell you that Greece has already involved itself in a claim to that effect.”
