Androulakis Stresses Importance of Economic Growth, Social Cohesion and Environmental Protection

November 29, 2022

ATHENS – “The triptych of economic growth, social cohesion and environmental protection must form the basis for the new social contract that the country, Europe, and the world need. Entrepreneurship needs the state [to have] clear and equal rules for all entrepreneurs,” opposition PASOK-KINAL leader Nikos Androulakis said late on Monday at the presentation of the “Sustainable, Innovative and Responsible Entrepreneurship” awards of the Chamber of Commerce and Professionals.

Androulakis added that the country is tired of client networks, favoured interests and constant direct assignments, as well as privileged access to financing for only a few. “All this prevents the healthy productive forces of the place from developing their potential and their creativity,” the leader of PASOK-KINAL said and emphasised: “At a very difficult moment, in which households and businesses are tested, we must have the necessary political will – and the plan – to fairly distribute the burdens of crises. Let’s give society confidence again that no one is left behind.”

Androulakis argued that “only in this way will we offer a vision and a realistic perspective to the healthy productive forces of the place, so that they can plan a future with security and optimism.”
