Hellenic Parliament President Nikos Voutsis met with COSCO President Xu Lirong in Shanghai on Thursday to discuss the investment prospects in Greece. Within the scope of his official visit to China, Mr. Voutsis was informed by Mr. Xu Lirong of COSCO’s investments and operations around the world, as well as of the crucial role of Piraeus port in the planning of COSCO’s transport activities.

Earlier, Mr. Voutsis had been given a tour around the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall, where he was given an insight into the development of this Chinese megacity that is home to around 25 million people. “It is a real model of urban planning that respects tradition and esthetics, but also with state-of-the-art technologies in all infrastructures,” Mr. Voutsis wrote in the visitors’ book.
