Greek President Kostis Stephanopoulos wound up his official visit to Spain on Thursday with visits to the Prado Museum in Madrid and a subsequent tour of Toledo.
His arrival in Spain reciprocated a visit to Greece by Juan Carlos I and Queen Sophia in May 1998.
One of the events related to Stephanopoulos' visit was the organization of a business symposium in the Spanish capital on Wednesday evening with the participation of numerous Spanish and Greek entrepreneurs. Greek Deputy National Economy Minister Yiannis Zafeiropoulos also attended the symposium.
The latter pointed to Spain's multi-faceted ties with Latin America along with Greek business inroads in the Balkans and Black Sea region as "common ground" for increasing Greek-Spanish economic relations within the framework of Euro-Mediterranean cooperation.
