Piraeus Port Authority
The benchmark of the Athens bourse managed to top 700 points on Wednesday after 12 sessions below the psychologically important level, as the situation at Folli Follie became clearer and Greek bond yields continued to ease. This time it was non-bank blue chips that drove the main index and turnover higher.
An Economy Ministry committee will decide on Friday whether to allow Piraeus Port Authority (OLP), majority-owned by China's Cosco, to create a new shipbuilding facility in Perama's ship repair zone.
Cosco had submitted a request for a license to repair mega-yachts to the regional authority, which rejected it, citing a 1984 law that forbids heavy industry facilities in Attica.
