The city of Thessaloniki is moving forward into the third millennium, bearing more than 23 centuries of Greek Macedonian history and civilization. It is the city of history, of legends, of battles, of generals, of saints, of friendship, of trade, of industry, of banking, of congresses, of hospitality, of stability, of investments, of monuments and museums.

The Municipality of Thessaloniki is currently implementing a long-term and multidimensional plan, which establishes Thessaloniki as the cultural, spiritual and financial metropolis of the extended region of Southeastern Europe, the Black Sea zone, and the Eastern Mediterranean basin.

It coordinates and unites the collective agents and the individual citizens by placing the common goals first and by achieving significant results. It utilizes to the full the comparative geographical, cultural, and historical advantages of the city, with the goal of improving the quality of life of the citizens and pleasing the city's numerous visitors.

Today, the city of Thessaloniki rises to the contemporary challenges of the times. With drive and enthusiasm it opens up new avenues of activity and prospects, avenues of the future; avenues of culture on the ttaces of the ancient Via Egnatia, the old road of Philippos, which unites the magic of the East with the rationalism of the West, the developed North with the developing South; avenues of religion, between Mount Olympus of the ancient idols and the God-protected Mount Athos of Orthodox Christianity, which begin and end up in the labyrinthine catacombs of Saint Demetrius, avenues of spirituality, with people and creations, whose range surpasses the borders of the Greek territory, and which revive and shape with their art the thousand-yearlong history of the city; avenues of development, with indexes and goals equal to the dynamism and vision of the people and collective agents of the city; avenues of European orientation, which establish the city in the mainstream of the culture of Europe, the self -government of Europe, the future of Europe.

In the Thessaloniki of the renaissance, the focus is man and the quality of his life, and the constant goal is the development of the city and its substantial contribution to friendship, creation, and prosperity.
