The creation of thematic and historical cultural routes in Macedonia, which incorporate the region’s tangible and intangible cultural heritage, is one of the culture ministry’s top priorities, as outlined by Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis, Culture Minister Lina Mendoni said after a meeting on Thursday with the regional governor of Central Macedonia Apostolos Tzitzikostas in Thessaloniki.
“Culture,” said Tzitzikostas, “is a very important economic and developmental tool.” The archaeological service, especially, he added, which can directly hire staff, can act as a catalyst for reducing unemployment in the region.
She also said that a series of archaeological works and excavations will be propelled in the area outside the Kasta grave monument complex.
