As part of a controversial package of austerity measures, the Greek
government is currently promoting several privatization projects.
Greece will be looking to sell stakes in betting monopoly OPAP and
offer and in oil refining giant Hellenic Petroleum to help cut the
country's debt. Costas Mitropoulos, the chief executive officer of
Greece's privatization agency, said that the government is also
offering investors ports, airports and several development projects,
including a highway linking a sea port in western Greece to Turkey.
Israeli investors have already expressed interest in a number of Greek
assets that are being privatized.
