Gennimata Describes EU Commission’s Proposal as “Positive”

ATHENS – Opposition Movement for Change (KINAL) leader Fofi Gennimata on Thursday described the European Commission's proposed Recovery Fund as "positive", noting that it is in the same direction as her party's proposals and can make a significant contribution to overcoming the crisis, as it includes substantial transfers of funds that are not linked to additional fiscal measures.

Following the Commission's proposal it was now the government's turn, she added, and asked Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis to play an active role at the next EU Summit so that the proposal is approved without delays, cuts or provisos.

"For Greece this is an important opportunity and that's why the European support should not be used to plug "holes" in the state budget or for clientelist favours done by ministers. These funds should be used to finance a comprehensive restructuring plan for a new and sustainable production model that meets the needs of the digital era and the green economy," underlined Gennimata.
