Prime Minister Costas Karamanlis on Saturday visited installations that will host the International University in Thessaloniki, Macedonia, saying that Thessaloniki, Macedonia and Greece are gradually developing into centres of education, culture, research and innovation. Karamanlis visited the installations accompanied by Education Minister Marietta Yiannakou, immediately after arriving in the city at noon on Saturday. He was welcomed there by Minister of Macedonia and Thrace George Kalantzis, deputies, Thessaloniki Prefect Panayiotis Psomiadis and Thessaloniki Mayor Vassilis Papageorgopoulos. The prime minister met with the members of the International University's Administrative Council and was given a guided tour of the installations, that are being rented by the PASEGES union in the region of Thermi and will be temporary until the new ones are created in the municipality of Mihaniona. Speaking to reporters after the tour, Karamanlis said "the International University will begin to operate here in Thessaloniki in early 2008. This workable building we are visiting will cover the tutorial needs of postgraduate students from countries of southeastern Europe and from Greece for the years to come in economic sciences, humanitarian studies and new technologies."
The prime minister added that "the International University, with integrated pre-graduate and postgraduate study programmes will be finally established on its own premises in the new university city of Mihaniona."
So it seems that Greece will get an international university soon. What's your point of view?
