Rather small but rich in history, the Swiss community in Greece has a presence in Athens for over 100 years now. The Swiss Society of Athens is celebrating in anticipation of the Swiss national holiday and will hold a garden party at the residence of the Swiss Ambassador in Greece on 29th June.

New Greek government and the social security reform

On September 16, 2007 at the legislative elections the conservative New Democracy party won parliamentary majority and formed a new government addressing among others privatization of several state owned enterprises (including Olympic Airlines) and the hot issue of social security reform which as elsewhere in Europe raises substantial objections from the Unions and other parts of the population. The social security system needs urgent reform as it is caught in the middle of aging workforce and increased life expectancy. The reform is expected to influence the status of many individuals and at our offices we now dispose of a hotline for assisting our customers to find an optimized pension scheme solution.
