Greek PM calls on Arabs to invest in his country

Greece's prime minister called on Arab countries Thursday to invest in his debt-saddled nation, promising new business opportunities as Greece makes changes to cope with the economic crisis.

George Papandreou told dozens of Arab businessmen and officials that as his country implements reforms, there will be opportunities for new businesses in sectors such as tourism, high tech communication and information technology.
