European Commission Vice President and Commissioner for Energy Union Maros Sefcovic is scheduled to arrive in the Greek city of Thessaloniki on Tuesday to attend a ceremony inaugurating the construction of the TransAdriatic Pipeline (TAP), which will be held in the presence of Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras. The ceremony will also be attended by delegations from other countries involved in the project, such as Albania and Italy, Bulgaria and other countries along the Southern Gas Corridor.
The head of the European Commission Representation in Greece Panos Carvounis noted that this is Sefcovic’s second visit in a short space of time, indicating the importance of the energy sector in the country and its potentially important contribution to the recovery of the economy.
During his visit, Sefcovic will take part in an event organized by the Hellenic Energy Forum and meet Environment and Energy Minister Panos Skourletis and other ministers involved in TAP’s construction.
