Accompanied by the Development Secretary General Serafim Tsokas and Invest in Greece representative Elias Eliadis, Kedikoglou also mentioned railway networks, key ports and pharmaceutical products as being of possible investment interest and contributing to the distribution of products in Russian and European markets.

CCI Vice-President Georgy Petrov said Russian business was very interested in investing in Greece, as wre the 175 CCI member chambers, and committed to promoting information on the investment law and key investment plans.

It is not a crisis of the Greek economy but of the EU, and Greece has been relegated to the role of its victim," Petrov said, mentioning that Russia is reviewing the EU's mistakes in order to avoid them during the development of the customs union and the unified area of Russia, Byelorussia and Kazakhstan among the three countries.
