A round table discussion followed the presentations, about the problems and obstacles in the implementation of PAYT systems in Greece and about the following consultations on the subject.
This meeting gave the opportunity for a prolific dialogue to develop, concerning the application of PAYT schemes among stakeholders in Northern Greece. For some participants this event was a good opportunity to become familiar with PAYT schemes and their function, while to others this was an opportunity for learning about how a PAYT scheme will be applied in Greece on a pilot scale and contribute to their success through participation in this and future consultations.
