Greece Takes Over EU Presidency

Greece took over the six-month rotating presidency of the Council of the European Union on January 1.
"Greece begins the EU presidency with positive results, a primary surplus and an expected revival ahead. It will be a presidency of hope for a more expansive and improved Europe," Prime Minister Antonis Samaras said, as quoted by the Athens News Agency - Macedonian Press Agency.
The priorities of Greece’s presidency will be unemployment, especially among the young, and investment promotion.
The other items that will top the presidency's agenda will be economic strengthening of the EU and eurozone, the bank union, the safeguarding of EU borders and a common EU maritime policy, the news agency quoted Vice President and Foreign Minister Evangelos Venizelos as saying.
