More specifically, ATTIKO METRO S.A., together with the Israeli Company Gadish, submitted an offer for undertaking the management of the project concerning two (2) Urban Light Railway Lines in Tel Aviv.
This new extroversion policy of ATTIKO METRO S.A. for undertaking projects abroad is here to replace the former strategy that weakened the company.

On the occasion of the above, the Chairman of the ATTIKO METRO S.A. BoD Professor Yannis A. Mylopoulos and the Vice Chairman and Managing Director of ATTIKO METRO S.A. Mr. Theodoros Papadopoulos made the following statement: “In view of satisfying the national need and implementing the governmental policy for productive reformation and development of the Greek economy using the country’s competitive advantages, it is the first time that ATTIKO METRO S.A. opens new paths for the utilization and transfer of know-how aboard, by participating in an international tender in Israel.
The human resources, the Greek scientific personnel and the valuable know-how acquired during the last decades in the design, management and construction of technical projects in Greece constitute an undisputable comparative advantage that is now internationally acknowledged.
Greek Public Companies take the lead in the struggle for development and guide Greek economy into the award of international projects; the benefits are obvious for the companies themselves, their executives and for our country”.
