Greece needs to develop a network of at least 3,000 charging stations and more than 100 fast-charging stations for electric cars throughout the country’s national road network, without even taking into account the needs of islands and cities, Evangelos Bekiaris, head of the Hellenic Institute of Transport (HIT) – a part of the Centre for Research and Technology Hellas (CERTH) – told the Athens-Macedonian News Agency on Wednesday.

The 2019 primary budget surplus will end up at 3.7-3.8 percent of gross domestic product, according to the latest estimates by the State General Accounting Office. This will exceed the target for 3.5 percent of GDP by 0.2-0.3 percent, or 400-600 million euros.
