- Ministry of Development, Competitiveness and Shipping (Greece)
The Ministry of Development, Competitiveness and Shipping (Greek: Υπουργείο Ανάπτυξης, Ανταγωνιστικότητας και Ναυτιλίας) of Greece was created in October 2009 as the Ministry of the Economy, Competitiveness and Shipping (Υπουργείο Οικονομίας, Ανταγωνιστικότητας και Ναυτιλίας). It resulted from the break-up of the unified Economy and Finance Ministry (Υπουργείο Οικονομίας και Οικονομικών), and the merger of what constituted the old National Economy Ministry (Υπουργείο Εθνικής Οικονομίας) with the Ministry of Development (Υπουργείο Ανάπτυξης) and the Mercantile Marine Ministry (Υπουργείο Εμπορικής Ναυτιλίας).
On 7 September 2010 it was renamed as the Ministry of Regional Development and Competitiveness (Υπουργείο Περιφερειακής Ανάπτυξης και Ανταγωνιστικότητας) following the re-establishment of a separate Ministry of Maritime Affairs, Islands and Fisheries. After the re-merger of the latter on 17 June 2011, it received its present name.
The current minister is Michalis Chrisochoidis.
