The Greek government is seeking to restart manufacturing units that have terminated operations but have exploitable building and machinery installations.

Deputy Industry Minister Theodora Tzakri, addressing a meeting with the country’s regional authorities asked them to locate at least ten enterprises based on their regions which are included in sectors with positive outlook, they have particular importance to the local economy, they have terminated operations but have exploitable building and machinery installations.

The aim is to examine possibilities of interventions towards a quick restart of operations of these manufacturing enterprises with state support. The basic plan of the ministry is to examine the possibility of licensing these enterprises using fast-track procedures in cooperation with Enterprise Greece and to present investment plans to Greek and foreign investors.

In her address, Tzakri said that despite the very negative trends which prevailed in the 2008-2014 period, some sectors showed greater resilience compared with others, such as oil refinery, pharmaceutical products, base metals, machinery and equipment, repair and installation of machinery and equipment, food, beverage and tobacco, paper products, printing and data reprocessing, chemicals, metal products, computers, electronics and optics, transport equipment.
