State-backed efforts to repair damage wreaked on the Ionian island of Cephalonia by two earthquakes earlier this year are progressing at a satisfactory pace, Transport and Infrastructure Minister Michalis Chrysochoidis told a parliamentary committee Tuesday.

State engineers have inspected more than 3,000 buildings on the island, deeming around 1,500 to be habitable and another 1,500 requiring repair, with 200 slated for demolition, the minister said.

Meanwhile, with the tourist season at its peak, applications by local hoteliers for state aid to carry out repairs are being processed as quickly as possible, the minister indicated. Of the 17 appeals, nine have been approved while the rest are pending, he said, noting that the total cost of repairs to damaged hotels is estimated at 1.1 million euros.
