The main part of the ceremony followed, with Mr Nicos Papapostolou’s speech, which concetrated on the ceremony’s main theme. Mr Papapostolou said: “Businesses constitute a basic cell in the contemporary globalized market. Industry, trade, or service provider, it is a unti within society, which acts both as a giver and a receiver. It has to appreciate what it receives and handle it with the proper social responsibility, especially when it addresses an important sector such as Health”.

Mr Fokas speech followed, with the theme “Technology and Research – The New National Effort.” Mr Fokas focused on three main subjects:

The secret of the meaning of any image.”
