[ATHENS] Chinese technology and communication solutions giant Huawei inaugurated on Thursday a pilot distribution centre at Piraeus port, another significant step enhancing cooperation between Greece and China.

The official opening of the distribution centre, at the premises of Chinese multinational shipping conglomerate Cosco's subsidiary Piraeus Container Terminal SA (PCT) at Greece's biggest port, is the fulfilment of Huawei's commitment made in May 2013 to the Greek government, during Greek Prime Minister Antonis Samaras' official visit to China.

From now on, Huawei, a leading global provider of technology and communications solutions (ICT) which serves more than one-third of the world's population in 140 countries and regions, will be distributing its products to European markets through Greece.
