Greece accepts $31 million bid for island plot
Thursday - 1/31/2013, 1:20pm EST
ATHENS, Greece (AP) - Greece's state privatization fund says it has accepted a (EURO)23 million ($31 million) bid from New York-based investors to develop real estate on the western resort island of Corfu.
It is the first successful deal involving a large plot of state-owned real estate, which accounts for about 50 percent of Greece's ambitious privatization program.
A fund statement Thursday said NCH Capital will be granted a 99-year concession to exploit the seaside plot at Kassiopi. The state will retain ownership of the 120-acre (nearly 50-hectare) forested property, selling what it calls the "right of surface."
The fund said the total investment at Kassiopi is expected to reach (EURO)75 million ($101 million), and will create hundreds of construction jobs.
Greece's privatization program is part of its commitments to international bailout creditors.
