Gentiloni: Greece’s Recovery Plan Compatible with EU Strategic Goals

ATHENS — The initial evaluations of Greece's proposed Recovery Plan are positive, said EU Commissioner for Economy Paolo Gentiloni, speaking at the Delphi Economic Forum VI at Zappeion Hall in Athens on Monday.

Submitted by Greece to the European Commission among those by another 14 member-states, the plan meets the general conditions set by European institutions, and also provides for a cash flow towards green growth and digital reforms, he noted.

A final evaluation will arrive in coming weeks, he added, noting that the Greek recovery plan appears compatible with the EU's strategic goals; it makes use of all available EU resources, including grants and loans, and contains comprehensive proposals for specific projects and reforms, the Commissioner said.

The Delphi Economic Forum VI (May 10-15) is under the aegis of President of the Hellenic Republic Katerina Sakellaropoulou. Athens-Macedonian News Agency is a communications sponsor (see www.amna.gr/delphi-VI).
