    Hi

    What is your equivalent of a minister of telecommunications, please?

    I.e. which minister is in charge of the telephone system? Is the same minister in charge of postal communications too?

    Best

    Hi,

    minister of communications translates as υπουργός τηλεπικοινωνιών, but since June 2012 these responsibilities have passed to the Ministry of Development, Competitiveness, Infrastructure, Transport and Networks ( = Υπουργείο Ανάπτυξης, Ανταγωνιστικότητας, Υποδομών, Μεταφορών και Δικτύων). This newly formed ministry consists of departments (General Secretaries), and one of them is in charge of telephone systems and postal communications: Γενική Γραμματεία Τηλεπικοινωνιών και Ταχυδομείων. Literally translates as: General Secretariat of Telecommunications and Postal Services.
