Photo of the Day: Greece at the Helm of the European Union

 The official logo of Greece's 5th Presidency of the EU 

Today's official commencement ceremony marks the assumption by Greece of  the rotating  presidency of the Council of the European Union (EU) on January 1, 2014, for the next six months.

It is the fifth time Greece will preside over the European Union  since joining what was known as the European Economic Community (EEC) in 1991.

Greece's experience in the organisation of major political and sporting events in the past means that Greece is very well-equipped to make a success of this fifth Presidency, despite the many derogatory reports by some of the world's media and especially those of Germany.
There is no reason for this presidency to be any less successful than the previous four. 

On the contrary, Greece is in a very good position to make this a great success by virtue of the fact that she is one of those countries suffering from the consequences of harsh austerity measures imposed without the accompanying measures needed to promote economic development. 
Yes, Greece CAN!
