Ma­tu­rity test

Kathimerini English - - Front Page -

The saga over the Sk­ouries gold mine project in the north­ern Greek re­gion of Halkidiki, which is backed by Cana­dian gold-min­ing com­pany El­do­rado and has been dogged by con­tro­versy and set­backs for years now, reads like a bad soap opera. Rul­ing SYRIZA, how­ever, is not ca­pa­ble of solv­ing its own in­ter­nal dis­agree­ments that have led to the stalling of the Sk­ouries project, and that’s why it has failed its lat­est ma­tu­rity test. For­eign in­vestors and in­ter­na­tional mar­kets be­lieve that Sk­ouries and the project to de­velop Athens’s old in­ter­na­tional air­port at Elliniko are the two projects which will re­ally show whether or not things have changed in Greece and whether or not the gov­ern­ment it­self has learned any­thing and changed its ways for the bet­ter. It ap­pears that those in­ter­ested in Greece might just have to wait a lit­tle while longer for that to be­come ap­par­ent.
