Greece benefits from cooperation

China Daily | Updated: 2017-09-12 08:01

China is a power with a strategic plan and Greece can only benefit from bilateral cooperation, Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras said on Sunday.

As the honored country of the 82nd Thessaloniki International Fair, Greece's top annual trade exhibition, China was in the spotlight when the fair opened this weekend.

During a news conference after his opening speech, Tsipras commented on Greece's strategic partner, expressing his admiration over the strategy of "a strong and peaceful country".

China is one of "the few countries with such strength, having a strategy, a plan, knowing what she wants", he said.

Greece is thirsty for foreign investments and is open to discuss collaboration projects with all interested sides, as it can only benefit from investments such as the one Chinese made at the port of Piraeus in recent years, he added.

"Greece is a member of the eurozone, of Europe, a pillar of the European policy thanks to its history and culture, and in parallel a country which can communicate like no other with Russia, China and the Arab world. Only a few countries are in position to do this," he said.
