Thanks for the link, Maik. Didn't expect to say this but it is quite interesting. It's a much more comprehensive agreement than just names. It includes abandoning all claims to each other's territory and opposing all such irredentist claims by others within each country's own  territory. There is also a major concession by N. Macedonia regarding recognition of and respect towards Greek "patrimony" within its territory, effectively allowing Greece to claim Alexander the Great etc.  N. Macedonia will also abandon irredentist symbols on flags etc. i. e the Vergina Star.

No wonder there's a lot of kerfuffle on both sides.

That's according to ekathimerini.com. Nineteen page .pdf, in English but haven't attempted to read it yet.

Sure hasn't got universal support, as the comments in the brief video clip on the Independent website show:

Macedonia president refuses to sign deal with Greece changing name of country

A major step forward, a game changer even, if it gets enough support. It's being strongly opposed by Mitsotakis of New Democracy and Ivanof, the President of FYROM, is against what he says is just an agreement between two prime ministers.

ENFIA hikes for 1 mln owners

The data on the adjusted property rates used for tax purposes (known as “objective values”) that the Finance Ministry released on Tuesday showed that for 946,671 households and 7,126 enterprises, the Single Property Tax (ENFIA) will grow this year by up to 200 euros, or a little more in some cases... in densely populated areas, on Greece’s islands and at tourism destinations in general.

Tax experts warn that besides the ENFIA hikes, thousands of owners, particularly at tourism destinations, should brace for income tax hikes too as the rise in objective values will also raise the total value of their assets on which their income tax is also calculated, known in Greek as “tekmiria.”
