Greek Church, Qatar Hold Talks on Developing Ecclesiastical Land

November 02, 2011

Nov. 2 (Bloomberg) -- The Archbishop of Athens, Hieronymos II, discussed with Qatar the development of church land in Athens during a recent visit to the emirate, the synod of Greek Orthodox bishops said in a statement on its website.

While the statement didn’t identify the site, Imerisia reported that the talks were about a plan for Qatar to develop 21 acres of prime real estate in the seaside suburb of Vouliagmeni, either as an hotel or as a photovoltaic park. The newspaper didn’t say where it got the information.
