Mitsotakis Meeting with Volkswagen CEO on Astypalea

ATHENS — Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis will visit Astypalea – the Cycladic island which Greece and the Volkswagen Group are turning into a model island for climate-neutral mobility – on Wednesday.

Mitsotakis is expected to arrive at 12:00 noon.

At 15:00, the premier will meet with visiting Volkswagen AG CEO Herbert Diess, and at 16:15 he will attend the delivery of service cars and chargers, a gift of the company, to the police and the Port Authority of the island.

In the afternoon, at 17:30, Mitsotakis will address an event on "Astypalea: Smart & sustainable island – Progress Report, from vision to action."

A memorandum between the company and Greece to establish a groundbreaking mobility system on the island was signed in November 2020. The project is expected to initially run for six years, with energy primarily generated from local green power sources (solar and wind).
