Greece to Support Print Media with Funding for Transportation, Paper Costs

ATHENS – The Greek Parliament plenary approved funding for print media on Tuesday that will help them overcome financial problems resulting from the energy crisis.

Ruling New Democracy and main opposition SYRIZA voted in favor of the amendment, which was introduced as a rider to a fast-track bill on investments. Greek Solution voted “present” while PASOK-KINAL, the Communist Party (KKE) and MeRA25 voted against it.

Deputy Minister to the Prime Minister and government spokesman Yiannis Economou said the print media are “under severe financial strain, both because of the drop in their circulation and in the rise of their operational costs, due to the energy crisis.” The support funds will go to offset transportation costs and printing paper, he added.
