Greek PM Alexis Tsipras addressed the official event for the opening of another portion of Ionia Road, in western Greece, Tuesday. “It is a great pleasure for us to deliver a road project of strategic importance to Epirus, a project that pulls western Greece out of isolation,” the Prime Minister stressed in his speech. Mr. Tsipras said that a vision for thousands of citizens who had been neglected had been realised. The government has been milking the Ionia Road project in an effort to show results.
“This project gives a great boost to growth, commerce and tourism and will play a tole in the recovery and the reconstruction of Greece and Epirus”,the Greek PM said. The Greek PM is scheduled to visit Ioannina and meet with local business groups before attending a reception at the city’s Museum of Silver Smithing.
