Prime Minister and Culture Minister Costas Karamanlis on Wednesday held talks with Alternate Culture Minister Fani Palli-Petralia concerning the post-Games use of facilities built for the 2004 Olympics in Athens.
Petralia said that she had briefed the premier on the progress of tenders for Olympic facilities and noted that a great deal of interest had been expressed by investors up to this time. She said the premier had given orders for faster and fully transparent progress in order to protect the public interest.
The minister also noted that tenders for a Greek Olympic Games Museum and a Museum of Classical Athletics had been underway for the past 20 days, with plans submitted for funding by the 3rd Community Support Framework (CSF).
She said the deadline for submitting bids ended in November.
