Government to auction 10-year TV licenses
Greece plans to launch intentional auctions for 10-year television licenses, government officials said yesterday, as part of reforms agreed with the country’s international lenders under its third bailout. “Our aim is to table the bill tonight,” the officials said. Government spokeswoman Olga Gerovasili told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency that the left-wing government will submit draft legislation to Parliament to “set order” on broadcasting licensing, which was a government pledge. “The government is ready to implement this pledge to restore a transparent landscape on a public asset such as [TV] frequencies,” Gerovasili said. multi-billion-dollar project expected to become one of the world’s busiest air hubs, has been delayed until 2018, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said yesterday. He gave no reason for the delay. The facility, to be built near Terkos Lake, had been scheduled to open on October 29, 2017 – the 94th anniversary of the founding of modern Turkey.
