New, Strategic links between Trans-Continental Sea Ship Transports and Railroad/Airport transports' boost, as well as EU's Maritime policies, appear to be a central key in the latest, 6,5 Billions $ worth deals brokered between China and Greece, together with Wind Power and traditional quality Greek products, such as Parthenon-like White Marble, Mediterranean Olive Oil, special Wines, etc., as it results from what was anounced at the beginning of a 3 Days official visit by Chinese Prime Minister Li Keqiang, who meets with EU chairman-in-office, Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras both in Athens and in Pireas' Seaport, where planned vertical N/S Rail links with the rest of Europe are due to play an important role in the forseable Future, according to the latter.



Better financial conditions for Ship Building in China by the Greek Ship Transport Economy, (almost 16% of the Global Merchant Fleet in the whole World), which is the Biggest Foreign client of Beijing/Shanghai in this domain Today, apparently goes together with a growing interpenetration and cooperation also on various Trans-Continental Shipping Business projects in the private sector. In addition, Maritime Scientific Research, Technology and protection of Natural Environment, are also included in the package anounced shortly before the forthcoming EU Summit of June 27 in Brussels, which was initialy scheduled to extend up to EU's Security and Growth policies in the Maritime sector, where China reportedly has more than 3 Million Square Km of "Blue" area, while the Oceans are expected to play an important role for Development in the World in the Future.


With 42 Years-long Diplomatic relations already since 1972, which evolved in a Strategic Partnership in 2006, while China's 1st attempt in the World to run a key overseas Port with COSCO giant's investments to Pireus Container Terminal since the beginning of 2009, which grew fast from 685.000 TEUs to 2,52 Millions between 2010-2013, ( i.e. Multiplied more than X 400 % !), the two complementary Countries offer a natural Bridge for EU - China links particularly in the domain of Maritime policy, on which PM Beijing's strategy is due to be presented by PM. Li's speech in Athens' Maritime Forum, at the eve of the EU Summit of 26-27 June.


Cultural and particularly Geo-Political agreements between the two strategicaly located Countries, which already have close Cooperation on Olympic Games' hosting experience and projects, (and are perhaps unique in the World to have kept more or less some continuity with their respective over-Millenary Civilisations, that Ancient Greek emperor Alexander the Great had notoriously tried to Unite, arriving as far as North of India, already as early as since the 3rd Century BC, i.e. almost a Thousand Years before Italian Marco Polo from Venice finaly succeeds to do so with his Merchand and Writer's trips around 12.000 BC, through Greek-Byzantine Empire's capital Constantinople, followed by a Return back to Europe via... Maritime Ship roads), reportedly offer a fertile and adequately strong Context for such Economic deals.


The boost thus given to Trans-Continental Maritime Transport by both China and Greece, (whose private Ship Owners have reportedly passed commands recently for more than 140 Ships to China, i.e. near to the Half of 378 Ships of Greek interests currently built accross the World, compared to more than 3.900 Ships controlled Today by private Greek Shipowners, with a Total Worth of 84 Billions €), in addition with a reportedly growing parallel Chinese interest for Greek State's Bonds in the forthcoming period, seem to table on a forthcoming European and Global Economic Growth, at least in certain key sectors.


By a Symbolic coincidence, even the new President of China, Xi Jiping, (who strongly supported EU's role and EurAsian "Vision" in a Multi-Polar World during his recent 1st trip to the Franco-German core of EU's HQ in Brussels last April/May, hopefuly to be followed in Future also by a 2nd trip to Visit and Speak at a New EU Parliament's plenary session in Strasbourg, €uroZone's natural Center ; See "EuroFora"s relevant Draft-NewsReport, already sent earlier to Subscribers/Donors), is expected to possibly visit, together with his wife, a famous philanthropist and singer, some particularly beautiful and Historic Greek Islands at the Aegean Sea later this Summer, probably on July, according to informed sources. 


A Top Political boost for a Maritime-Link complement, (Marco Polo-like : Comp. Supra), to President Xi's official inauguration of a grandiose project for terrestrial Trans-Continental Strategic Transport Links via the EurAsian Railroad Network extending from Germany up to China and even South Korea, via Russia (and; in one out of 2 simultaneously possible alternatives, also Kazakhstan) ? 



Xi's astonishing Popularity even among young Chinese Athlets, who spectacularly stoped to give him a very long and enthousiastic Salute at the Opening ceremony of the recent Winter Olympic Games at Sochi, (where he also met not only with Greek President Karolos Papoulias, but naturally mainly with Russian President Vladimir Putin, his closest Partner in the New Chinese President's 1st ever trop abroad, earlier towards the BRICS Countries' Summit, long before this Spring's Shanghai Organisation's Summit back in China), stimulates Hopes that such an EU - China+ Double "acrobatic" Trans-Continental Sea and Land exploit, has a real Chance to be achieved in the foreseable Future, thanks to Strengthening Foundations systematicaly laid among Pan-European and Chinese People...

An appeal to make the "World more Human", by defending basic Human Values, helping those in need, and paying hommage to Nature, figured high in Pope Benedict's long-awaited speech at his "First Angelus" in the symbolic, beautiful historic small town of Brixen/Bressalone at the Alpes.


- "No Dictature, nor any destructive force can rob us of the most important goods wich are God's gift", stressed Pope Benedict, referring to elementary Human Values, in a last-minute improvisation of his draft speech, before launching also a call to "help those in need", in order to "make the World more human".

- "Jesus is the focus .. In him is Justice and Freedom", said earlier Brixen's Bishop Wilhelm Egger, after prayers including calls to "Truth, Justice and Freedom", read at a Mass of thousands in the town of Archangel Michael, known as defender of christians against the devil.


In what looks as a reference to BioEthics' dillemas of crucial impportance, raised at Strasbourg's unique in the World legally binding International Treaty on BioMedicine and Human Rights (1998, with the "hottest" issues added later through additional protocols, some of whom are imminent), he spoke also of the splendid "Nature" at this Alpen's ressort : This fits well Vatican's earlier anouncement that Pope Benedict's "prayer intentions for August" are mainly to "respect God's design for the world", and "become ever more aware of the great gift of God which Creation represents for us".

- "The most important things in our lives cannot be bought, but are only given as holy gifts : The Sun and its Light, the Air that we breath, the Water, the beauty of Earth, Love, Friendship, Life itself", Pope Benedict added, extending also to Natural Environment, another topical issue after recent Climatic upheavals at several parts of the World.



The "preparation of Pope Benedict's visit to France", which currently heads the EU, at mid-September, among exceptionaly important Council of Europe meetings on Human Rights in Paris and Strasbourg, is part of his work, together with his "book on Jesus", during brief Summer Holidays in Brixen, said his Spokesman, Federico Lombardi.

- The Pope's message is mainly religious, theological. But we are living in a concrete world, and ideas may be taken by readers as references to the actuality. However, it's better to wait to se what the Pope will say in Paris and at Lourdes, added to EuroFora Lombardi, who is also Director of Vatican's Press Office.


Brizen/Bressanone is similar to Strasbourg by succeeding to make a fertile synthesis of Germanic and Latin sources of Europe, like the two local rivers who meet at the historical center of the town, among spectacular ressorts at mountains' hights.

Headquarters for an Historic Religious Seminar, it attracted recently also a Free University's Educational studies. Well-known as a long-time preferred rest place for former cardinal Radzinger and his brother Georg, it includes areas named "St Benedeto" and "St George"...


But Pope Benedict's first speech gave also another symbolic rendez-vous :

- "Next Wednesday, August 6, we shall commemorate the 30st anniversary from the death of late Pope Paul VI", who "concluded Vatican II", and "the Transfiguration of Jesus, mystery of the divine light, which exerced a unique fascination to his soul", he said to some 12.000 applauding People, among the happy few who succeeded to have a rare place for an open-air Mass inside the Domplatz a particularly sunny day at the Alpes.



2009 EU Elections were won by Parties against Technocracy and Turkey's controversial EU bid, while the 1999-2004 Majority Abstention trend decelerated. What should be done in 2009-2014 ?
