Greek Prime Minister Alexis Tsipras is inaugurating, on Tuesday, the main artery of Western Greece, i.e. Ionia Odos (A5 Motorway). The construction of the highway started in 2003 and was completed a few days ago. Ionia Odos is 196 km long; it starts from Rio, Achaia, and crosses Western Greece up to Ioannina where it connects with Egnatia Odos. The Prime Minister will then visit Ioannina to meet with town bodies.

On Wednesday, Mr. Tsipras will visit Kavala, where he will meet with his Bulgarian counterpart, Boyko Borisov, and will attend an event for the signing of Kavala – Alexandroupoli – Burgas – Varna railway connection.
