Tsironis, Kokkalis take up posts at Rural Development and Foods ministry

Protecting the environment pays and giving Greek agricultural activity this hallmark will make the country’s unique, high-quality products famous throughout the world, the new Alternate Rural Development and Foods Minister Yiannis Tsironis said on Monday, at the handover ceremony from his predecessor Markos Bolaris at the Rural Development and Foods Ministry.

A good ecological footprint could help Greek agriculture take off, he said.

The new deputy minister Vassilis Kokkalis, on his part, promised to continue the good work carried out by Bolaris and the minister, Vangelis Apostolou, who is staying on at the ministry’s helm.

“When young people return to the land, it will mean we have exited the crisis,” he said.
