 Policy Statement & Evaluation of the Implementation of Development Law 1892/90   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-17)
The fundamental principles underlying all functions of the Region of East Macedonia - Thrace amount, first, to the quest for rational development policies and clearly determined strategic objectives, and second, to the consolidation of factors allowing for sustainable implementation and optimum results.
These noteworthy changes reflect, to some degree, the influence of some exogenous parameters, but more likely are the result of a combined impetus provided by the favorable macroeconomic environment and the blend of industrial policy that has been implemented nationally in recent years.
An evaluation of the implementation of the Development Law 1892/90 within the borders of East Macedonia - Thrace was commissioned by the Region and conducted in the early part of 1998 by INDECO S.A., a consulting firm based in Thessaloniki, Greece.

 Western Thrace - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In August 1913 Bulgaria was defeated, but gained Western Thrace under the terms of the Treaty of Bucharest.
In the following years, the Central Powers (Germany, Austria-Hungary, Ottoman Empire) (with which Bulgaria had sided) lost World War I and as a result Western Thrace was given to Greece (which had sided with the Entente) (mainly the United Kingdom, France, Russian Empire) under the terms of the 1919 Treaty of Neuilly.
This was followed by a further population exchange which radically changed the demographics of the region toward increased ethnic homogenization within the territories each respective country ultimately was awarded.

I left Greece exactly 10 years ago for UK, but only a few months ago I found out that the government has re-arranged Greece’s peripheries and for some of them it has changed their names.
For example, Patra is not part of Peloponnese anymore, Thrace is called “East Macedonia and Thrace” now, while there is no Sterea Ellada, and Dodecanese & Cyclades are souped up now.
Cutting down Greek Macedonia in 3 and “elliminating” Thrace is stupid.
