PM Alexis Tsipras, Chicago mayor discuss city’s regeneration plan

Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras discussed with Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel the city’s urban regeneration agenda during a meeting in the U.S. city on Monday.

Emanuel told Tsipras it is important for progressive forces in Europe to promote social agendas and then analyzed the redevelopment plan of the Chicago lakeside area as well as the extended urban regeneration plan with an emphasis on green and public areas, which, he said, has improved the city and the standard of living.

On his side, the Greek prime minister noted the contribution of the Greek-American community in the development of Chicago and the dynamic of the Greek economy.
