Disposable plastic items on the way out in 2021

The distribution of disposable plastic products on the market will be made illegal as of July 3, 2021, according to a law drafted by the Environment Ministry which seeks to reduce the harmful impact of certain plastics on the environment.

These items include plastic cutlery (forks, knives, spoons, chopsticks), plates, straws, food and beverage containers made of expanded polystyrene, and drink stirrers.

Getting a tax number gets easier

Taxpayers will now be able to get a tax registration number (AFM) via video call.

This is made possible by the myAADElive service and is included in a new decision by the Independent Authority for Public Revenue (known in Greek by the acronym AADE), which has modified the existing rules for AFM issuance and starting, changing and halting business activity.

The Eastern Mediterranean tinderbox: Why Greek-Turkish rivalries have expanded

Over recent weeks, tensions have been rising in the waters of the Eastern Mediterranean, prompted by what seems like a simple rivalry over energy resources.

Turkey has pursued an aggressive gas exploration effort, its research vessel heavily protected by warships of the Turkish Navy. There have been encounters with rival Greek vessels and a third Nato country, France, has become involved, siding with the Greeks.

Most recently it's been announced that a small number of F-16 warplanes from the United Arab Emirates (UAE) are deploying to an air base on Crete for exercises with their Greek counterparts. Ostensibly this is a routine deployment.

So what is going on here?

What's happening is dangerous, complicated and threatens to exacerbate existing fault lines in the region.
