Former culture and tourism official Angela Gerekou has been appointed to head the Greek National Tourism Organization (GNTO), Minister Haris Theoharis announced on Thursday.
Her "experience and knowledge on tourism-related issues will contribute to shaping a modern GNTO, adapted to current conditions," Theoharis said.
Prime Minister Viorica Dancila said that, in respect to the Cooperation and Verification Mechanism (CVM), she would like a much better dialogue between Romania's Government and the European institutions, pointing out that she had talked with acting European Commission First Vice-President Frans Timmermans on this topic.
There is no other explanation as to why the Visegrad Four countries of Poland, Hungary, Czech Republic and Slovakia joined with Italy to pave the way for a German federalist to become president of the European Commission despite their past calls for an end to Germany's domination. All five nations are governed by anti-liberal, populist or far-right parties.
