Kathimerini English - - Focus - DIMITRA MANIFAVA

Four in­vest­ment projects are ex­pected to be granted fast-track sta­tus – of­fer­ing them rapid li­cens­ing – at to­mor­row’s meet­ing of the Min­is­te­rial Com­mit­tee for Strate­gic In­vest­ments.

The in­vest­ments add up to 464.5 mil­lion eu­ros and will be the first to ac­quire such sta­tus since last Septem­ber.

Kathimerini un­der­stands that the four projects are the fol­low­ing: the con­struc­tion and opera- tion of a lux­ury tourism ac­com­mo­da­tion unit on Sko­r­pios is­land with a bud­get of 120 mil­lion eu­ros; the con­struc­tion and op­er­a­tion of an in­no­va­tive cul­tural and com­mer­cial park at Alikar­nas­sos, in Irak­lio, Crete, bud­geted at 69.3 mil­lion; the con­struc­tion and op­er­a­tion of a pho­to­voltaic park with a to­tal ca­pac­ity of 284 megawatts and a bud­get of 213.8 mil­lion; and the de­vel­op­ment and op­er­a­tion of a next-gen­er­a­tion lan­d­line tele­phone net­work by Voda­fone, bud­geted at 61.4 mil­lion eu­ros.

To date the fast-track sta­tus has been granted to 13 projects, but the pro­ce­dures pro­vided by the li­cens­ing sys­tem have only been im­ple­mented for 10, with a to­tal bud­get of 2.65 bil­lion eu­ros. The other three projects are in the process of ex­it­ing the sys­tem, for var­i­ous rea­sons.
